Get Your Modbus TCP/IP Client Device Connected to a Profibus DP Controller
The 460MSPBS moves data between a Modbus TCP/IP Client device and a Profibus Controller device. With the 460MSPBS you are making a direct connection between Modbus TCP/IP Client data and user defined slots in your Profibus device.
How Do You Map the Data?
Modbus TCP/IP Client register and coil data will be mapped into 10 Profibus DP slots. The slots will be assigned a type of Int8, int16, int32, int64, UInt8, Uint16, Uint32, Uint64, float, double, binary8, binary16 or binary32.
When writing from your Profibus Controller to your Modbus TCP/IP device, the data in the slots can be mapped to registers and coils in the Modbus TCP/IP Client.
It’s really that simple. Need to modify your data as it passes from one protocol to the other? No problem. Each data mapping you apply can be modified with up to 3 mathematic functions. Add 4 to a value, multiply by 4 and divide by 10 with ease.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460MSPBS provides an option to access Modbus TCP/IP Client data without having to upgrade your PLC or get an expensive in rack solution. While there are certainly a number of other companies offering stand alone 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, even if that means recommending someone else’s solution. 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. We are unashamed of the fact that we are a smaller company because that means you mean a lot more to us. Try the RTA difference today!
