Map Your Legacy PLC to a TCP/IP Socket
You can now make your legacy serial PLCs look like Ethernet TCP/IP data! Any of your old, serial PLCs like the PLC5, SLC, or MicroLogix can now provide data to Ethernet TCP/IP applications.

It’s the perfect tool to keep those old legacy PLCs from the scrap pile.

How Do I Use the 460ETCDFM in My Application?
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 mating file locations in the DF1 devices like N7: 200 or F9:1.

It really is that simple.

Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
While there are certainly a number of other companies offering 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.

Try the RTA difference today.

What our Customers are Saying

“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!"”

Eric P. / Kendall Electric

“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.”
