DL4500-EDH+: Ethernet TCP/IP to DH+

PDF   Download

Equustek’s gateway interfaces your Ethernet TCP/IP Network to AB’s Data Highway Plus DH+, extending the life of Allen-Bradley PLC’s without Ethernet Interfaces. The DataLink solution allows applications such as RSLogix, RSLinx, and RSView to access devices on a DH+ network from an Ethernet/IP LAN, enabling users to run MMI applications or program and monitor PLCs on a DH+ network from an Ethernet LAN station. Other MMI’s tested include Wonderware, Kepware, and Intellution.

The DL4500-EDH+ combines the Lantronix Ethernet Microprocessor with Equustek’s DH+ tokenring technology.
