The 460TCPA moves data between ASCII RS232, RS422, or RS485 devices over to Ethernet TCP/IP connections. With the 460TCPA, you now have a solution to get ASCII barcode readers, ASCII weigh Scales, ASCII printers, and other ASCII devices connected to your TCP/IP Devices.
Incoming and outgoing ASCII data in TCP/IP packets is parsed into data segments and given a data type. Those values are then mapped to a TCP/IP device. If your device uses delimiters, the 460TCPA can be configured to automatically remove the delimiters on incoming messages and add delimiters back in on outgoing messages.
While there are certainly other companies offering protocol 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.
“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.”
