The Smart Way To Move Modbus RTU Registers and Coils To an EtherNet/IP Client
The 460ESMM connects up to 32 Modbus RTU slaves to an EtherNet/IP controller. It’s the perfect tool to save legacy Modbus RTU devices from the scrap pile and give you the ability to utilize the huge variety of Modbus RTU devices available in your EtherNet/IP Architectures.
How Do I Use the 460ESMM in My Application?
For Most applications the mapping is very straight forward. Modbus Register and Coil data is mapped to EtherNet/IP IO data blocks. EtherNet/IP data is mapped directly to your Modbus RTU Slaves. Up to 480 bytes of data can be moved in each direction between Modbus RTU and EtherNet/IP.
It really is that simple.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ESMM provides an option to connect Modbus RTU Slaves to an EtherNet/IP Scanner device. 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.
