Multi-protocol gateways bridge devices

Aug. 1, 2023

SoftPLC Gateways can be user-configured to simultaneously support multiple Ethernet and serial protocols, such as Ethernet/IP, ModbusTCP, Modbus, DF1 and ASCII. They also support multiple channels of Allen-Bradley Remote I/O (RIO) or Data Highway Plus (DH+). These gateways can bridge equipment from multiple vendors, and give users an easy way to upgrade obsolete drives, robots, operator interfaces and other RIO or DH+ devices—without requiring replacement/changes to the PLC or adding expensive communication modules.
