Get Your Ethernet TCP/IP Devices Connected Directly to the Data Table of your PLC over Profinet IO
The 460PSTCP moves data between up to 10 Ethernet TCP/IP devices and a Profinet IO Controller.
With the 460PSTCP you now have a tool to help you map Profinet IO Controller data into an Ethernet TCP/IP application. You can also capture Ethernet TCP/IP data and write them to your Profinet IO Controller.
How Does the Data Move In and Out of the Profinet IO Controller?
Incoming Ethernet TCP/IP data is mapped to a series of ten 128-byte input Slots on the Profinet IO network. Outgoing Ethernet TCP/IP data is mapped from a series of ten 128-byte output Slots on the Profinet IO network. Up to 1024 characters can be transferred in both directions through the gateway.
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. Add 4 to a value, multiply by 4 and divide by 10 with ease.
Why use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460PSTCP provides an option to access Ethernet TCP/IP devices easily with your Profinet controller. 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.
