Only the DeviceMaster UP Industrial Ethernet gateway offers a solution that configures in minutes via the web, allowing you to support major Industrial Ethernet protocols – EtherNet/IP™, PROFINET IO, or Modbus/TCP – on a single platform. Whichever protocol you need, the DeviceMaster UP provides an RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485 software-selectable serial connection to an Industrial Ethernet network.
Simultaneously connect both serial and Ethernet devices to PLCs and/or applications with DualConnectPlus™ technology. String, RFID, and barcode data filtering eliminates redundant data while extracting the RFID and barcode parameters.Software-selectable RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485 serial connections are supported via the 9-Pin terminal block connector.
The DeviceMaster Modbus model provides the following communication modes:
- Modbus/TCP to Serial or Ethernet TCP/IP
- Modbus/TCP to Modbus/RTU
- Modbus/TCP to raw serial data
- Modbus/RTU Device (Auto Locate and Auto Route)
The easy-to-use configuration and Modbus/TCP protocol makes upgrades for plant floor global visibility faster and more economical than ever before. The DeviceMaster Modbus enables managers to leverage legacy devices and boost ROI, while reducing PLC programming and maintenance costs with simplified PLC interfaces.
