Modbus TCP/IP Client to ASCII
FEATURES
 Connects a Modbus
TCP/IP Client Device to
an ASCII Controller
 Easily Manipulate your
Modbus TCP/IP Data as
it Passes from a Client
Device to ASCII
 Save Legacy ASCII
controllers and data
loggers
 Supports 100 Read and
100 Write Scan Lines
per Slave Device with up
to 512 Registers or 512
Coils
 Effortless Browser
Based Configuration, no
programming software is
required
 Simple data translation
allows you to manipulate
data as it passes
between protocols
Deliver Data from your Modbus TCP/IP Client Device to an
ASCII Based System or Controller
The 460MSA moves data between a Modbus TCP/IP Client and a n ASCII device or system.
It’s a simple solution that allows you to pass serial ASCII data to a Modbus TCP/IP controller.
It allows you to interrupt the ASCII data strings into meaningful data types for use in your
controller.
Best of all the product is Made in the USA, is always in stock and comes with 5 year warranty.
How Does it Work?
Up to 1024 ASCII characters can be parsed into up to 50 segments. Each segment can be
assigned a data type and then mapped to a user defined register or coil locations. Up to 50
segments of data on Modbus can be concatenated together and delivered as string to your
TCP/IP device.
It’s really that simple. Need to modify your data as it passes from one protocol to the other?
No problem. Each data mapping you apply can be modified with up to 3 mathematic functions.
Need to add or remove delimiters between segments, it does that too.
Why use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460MSA provides an option to manage Modbus TCP/IP devices with an ASCII based
controller. While there are certainly a number of other companies offering solutions like ours,
there is no one who provides the level of support and service that you receive from RTA.
When you call, a live person answers the phone. When you talk with sales, you will get honest
answers and recommendations even if that means recommending someone else's solution.
When you get support, it is from an engineer who had a hand in the product’s development,
and that doesn't require a ticket or 24 hour wait. We are unashamed of the fact that we are a
smaller company because, that means, you mean more to us.

A Word from our Founder
“It’s likely that your business isn’t industrial networking and it shouldn’t be. You make products, design systems, or manage some process. Whatever it
is that you make, monitor or install the process inevitably creates data. If you’re a control engineer and your plant has been around for a few years your
line is probably littered with devices that send out all kinds of data over many different protocols. If you’re an automation device developer you probably
have customer that need to move your data into some other network. Either way, you’ve got a device conversion problem. You have devices that generate ASCII , Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, BACnet, Profinet, Profibus, Ethernet TCP/IP , Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet or some other completely proprietary data
and now you’re the person that has to move that data to some other network!
I feel your pain… and rather than just my sympathy, I have a solution for you. You see, while your business may not be moving data around a factory
floor mine is. In fact, it’s all that we have done for over twenty years now. Our 460 series of Device Converters is the culmination of those twenty years.
You can now move all of your data, where you want, when you want and how you want. Try us on your next project, I guarantee you wont regret it.
