Get Your BACnet MS/TP System Connected Directly to the
Data Table of your Allen-Bradley PLC
The 460ETCBMS moves data between a BACnet MS/TP system and an
Allen-Bradley PLC.
With the 460ETCBMS you are making a direct connection between BACnet
MS/TP Master data and user defined Tags or Registers in the data table of
your Allen-Bradley PLC. There is no polling from the PLC or Ethernet/IP
scan lists to arrange. This is a direct connection between your device data
and the data table of your PLC.
How Does the Data Move In and Out of the PLC?
You allocate two areas of tags or register blocks in your Allen-Bradley PLC.
One area is a user defined set of write only tags or register blocks accepting
data from your BACnet MS/TP Master. The other area is full of read only
tags or register blocks to send data to your BACnet MS/TP Master. You
directly map BACnet MS/TP analog and binary data into read and write
locations in the data table of your Allen-Bradley PLC.
It’s really that simple.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ETCBMS provides an option to access a BACnet MS/TP data or tie an Allen-Bradley
PLC in your BMS system without having to upgrade your PLC or get an expensive in rack
solution. While there are certainly a number of other companies offering stand alone gateways,
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
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 a lot 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 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 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.”
