Deliver Data from Your Profibus Master to an ASCII Based System or Controller
The 460PBSA moves data between a Profibus Master device and Serial ASCII.

Its a great tool to implement your Profibus controller into your PC or embedded applications that support raw ASCII data.

How Does it Work?
Up to 244 bytes of Profibus data can be mapped to and from 10 slots in your Profibus Master device. The data segments can be converted to ASCII and concatenated into a string we deliver you your ASCII controller or logger. If you need to command the Profibus Master, an incoming ASCII string can be parsed and each segment can be directed to user a defined IO data location.

Need to scale your data or manipulate it with other math functions? The 460PBSA allows you to add scaling to any data, apply simple math operations, add alarming and control the request speeds of your Master device.

Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460PBSA provides an option to connect your Profibus controller with an ASCII based controller. While there are certainly a number of other companies offering solutions like ours, 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 that 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 more to us.

Gateway Security
You can configure up to 9 different users access to diagnostic and configuration screens.

Alarming
Set <, <=, >=, >, ==, !=, and Change-of-State rules on any data moving through the gateway. If alarm rule is triggered an email notification can be sent.

Translation Table
Allows for data manipulation during protocol translation. Scaling and other data format changes can occur in the gateway.

Status and Counters
Protocol specific status, counters and error messages are accessible within the gateways diagnostics page. They can also be delivered to a connected device.

Diagnostic Logging Page
Allows users to see and log start up sequences, protocol specific messages & error messages.
