Product Description

Connect up to 32 Modbus TCP Server Devices to DF1 Serial PLC5, SLC or MicroLogix PLC
You can now control a network of 32 Modbus TCP Servers from a legacy Allen-Bradley serial PLC. It’s the perfect tool to save legacy PLCs from the scrap pile and control Modbus TCP devices directly from the serial port of PLC5s, SLCs and MicroLogix PLCs.

How Do I Use the 460MCDFM in My Application?
For most applications, the mapping is very straight forward. Modbus Register and Coil data is mapped to Files in the PLCs data tables.

For example, you can map N7:200 to Modbus Register 40200 in Modbus Server 10.

It really is that simple.

Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
While there are certainly a number of other companies offering gateways, there is no one who provides the level of support and service that you receive from RTA.

When you call, a live person answers the phone. When you talk with sales, you will get honest answers and recommendations. When you get support, it is from an engineer who had a hand in the product’s development, and support doesn’t require a ticket or 24 hour wait.
