Get Your Modbus TCP/IP Server Devices Connected Directly to a Profinet IO Controller
The 460PSMC moves data between up to 32 Modbus TCP/IP Server devices and a Profinet IO Controller like an S7. It’s the perfect tool to tie legacy or cost-effective Modbus TCP/IP devices into your Profinet architecture.
Best of all the product is made in the USA, is always in stock and comes with a 5-year warranty.
How Do You Map the Data?
Modbus TCP/IP Server register and coil data will be mapped into 10 Profinet IO slots. Each slot will be assigned a type of Int8, int16, int32, int64, Uint8, Uint16, Uint32, Uint64, float, double, binary8, binary16, binary32, or Short String. The slot can consist of up to 128 bytes of data from any of your Modbus TCP/IP Server devices.
When writing from your Profinet IO Controller to your Modbus TCP/IP devices there will be up to 10 slots each defined by the same data type. Data in those slots can be mapped to registers and coils in any Modbus TCP/IP Server.
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.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460PSMC provides an option to access Modbus TCP/IP Server devices 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!
