Get Your Modbus RTU Slave Devices Connected Directly to a Profinet IO Controller
The 460PSMM moves data between up to 32 Modbus RTU Slave devices and a Profinet IO Controller like a S7. It’s the perfect tool to tie legacy or cost effective Modbus RTU devices into your Profinet architectures. 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 RTU register and coil data will be mapped from your Slave devices 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 RTU Slave devices.
When writing from your Profinet IO Controller to your Modbus RTU devices there will be up to 10 slots each defined by the same type. Data in those slots can be mapped to registers and coils in any Modbus RTU Slave.
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 460PSMM provides an option to access Modbus RTU Slave 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!
“I challenged a customer to get it working by the time I got back from his break room with a Coke and he indeed had it working when I got back. He then said, "It’s worth twice the price!"”

“Everything seems to be working as we imagined. Thanks for the great response time. I did not see any way to save the configuration other than screen shots, but the configuration did not get lost in the update. Thanks again, and you were a pleasure to work with.”
