Connect Legacy ASCII Devices and Systems to an
Ethernet/IP PLC
The 460ESA moves data between an EtherNet/IP PLC and Serial ASCII. It’s a perfect tool to
connect ASCII devices like barcode scanners, weigh scales, LED displays, laser markers and
It’s also a great way to interface with legacy PC based control systems. If you have a device
or system that communicates with serial ASCII data the 460ESA can help you connect to an
Ethernet/IP PLC.
How Does it Work?
Up to 480 bytes of data can be mapped to and from an EtherNet/IP PLC. The data segments
from EtherNet/IP can be converted to ASCII and concatenated into a string delivered to your
ASCII device or logger. If you need to command the Ethernet/IP device an incoming ASCII
string can be parsed. Each segment gets a defined data type and can be directed to user
defined IO data location.
Need to scale your data or manipulate it with other math functions? The 460ESA allows you to
add scaling to any data, apply simple math operations, add alarming and control the request
speeds of your Scanner device.
Why use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ESA provides an option to manage EtherNet/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.
Try the RTA difference today and give us a call at 1-800-249-1612 or check out more
information on us and our other solutions at www.rtaautomation.com.
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 customers 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 TCP/IP, 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 won’t regret it.
