You’ve just found the easiest way to move data to and from your Siemens S7 PLCs. Connect your Siemens S7 PLC to Allen-Bradley PLCs, EtherNet/IP, BACnet, Modbus, DeviceNet, OPC UA, PROFINET and more with an industrial gateway from Real Time Automation.
The S7 communication protocol makes reads and writes of the PLC’s data tables possible without the device data size limitation, performance requirements, and connection management required by alternative protocols such as PROFINET or Modbus. This protocol is the most effective protocol in moving bulk data to and from the controls.
Getting S7 PLCs to communicate with other leading protocol technologies has never been easier! The S7 protocol on the 460 gateway line gives you an easy solution to get your devices directly connected to a Siemens S7 PLC. These gateways feature a simple browser-based configuration, where configuration files can be saved for backups and configuration of multiple units. To make your life even easier, all S7 gateways from RTA also include these features below.
