MODBUS, in conjunction with Ethernet, is a way to achieve cost efficient, flexible, future proof and location independent solutions. It is suitable for customers who are looking for an easy way to connect existing devices or controllers.
The DL5000-ETH Communicator, available from PLC Peripherals , enables Modbus and generic data (ASCII) serial application protocols to exchange data with Ethernet TCP/IP, EtherNet I/P and Modbus TCP networks.
The Communicator is an external DIN rail device that connects Ethernet networks to serial interface devices and networks using standard connectors.
The DL5000-ETH enables PCs, PLCs and MMIs as well as OEM equipment such as barcode readers, printers, scales, process control devices etc., to connect to standard and industrial Ethernet networks.
The Communicator is fully configurable through a user-friendly Windows configuration program that enables a PC to configure certain fieldbus parameters as well as all serial sub-network properties.
