Connect ASCII Devices to Your Modbus TCP/IP PLC or HMI
The 460MSA moves data between a Modbus TCP/IP Client and an ASCII device or system. It’s a simple solution that allows you to pass serial ASCII data to a Modbus TCP/IP controller. It allows you to interrupt the ASCII data strings into meaningful data types for use in your controller.
Best of all the product is Made in the USA, is always in stock and comes with a 5 year warranty.
How Does it Work?
Up to 1024 ASCII characters can be parsed into up to 50 segments. Each segment can be assigned a data type and then mapped to a user defined register or coil locations. Up to 50 segments of data on Modbus can be concatenated together and delivered as string to your TCP/IP device.
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. Need to add or remove delimiters between segments? It does that too.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460MSA provides an option to manage Modbus TCP/IP devices with an ASCII based controller. While there are certainly a number of other companies offering solutions like ours, 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 that 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 more to us. Try the RTA difference today!
