The gateway can be used in a variety of applications, including those involving PLC-to-PLC interlocking, a SCADA interface or data concentration. Our EtherNet/IP™ driver supports multiple I/O connections offering you fast, consistent data delivery and the ability to prioritize data transfers by setting different update rates for control and diagnostic data. This allows you to send low-priority data at slower rates.
ProSoft Technology offers a variety of support services to get your gateway up and running. Our training video offers you a step-by-step tutorial to set up the gateway. Configuration is simplified for Rockwell Automation® users through the use of an embedded EDS Add-On Profile (AOP). With an EDS AOP, there are fewer configuration parameters to enter than when using a generic profile, decreasing commissioning time and potential errors. In addition, the ProSoft Discovery Service utility included with the gateway allows your PC to find your gateway and change its default address without it being on the same subnet as your PC. The SD card slot can be used to store configuration files in the event of an emergency. (The SD card is optional.)
