Products For Industry are pleased to announce that they now distribute the Jojab Pluto Ethernet safety gateway. The Ethernet Gateway enables two-way communication with the Jokab Pluto safety PLC.
Pluto Ethernet Gateway GATE-E1 handles the status from and to Pluto safety PLC’s via Ethernet protocols EtherNet/IP, PROFINET (in future), Modbus TCP and a simple binary protocol that uses TCP/IP.
There is a simple web server and a terminal server for IP-address configuration. A supervisory PLC system can have access to the I/O and other variables in a Pluto safety PLC via one of the Ethernet protocols.
Global I/O’s in a Pluto safety PLC are accessible via the usual I/O transfer in the respective protocol. A supervisory PLC system can transmit non-safety-related information to a Pluto safety PLC via the Ethernet protocol.
A total of 64 Boolean values and 8 different 16-bit registers can be transmitted. Function blocks for these functions are available in Pluto Manager.
