The Easiest Way to Integrate TCP/IP Socket Data into an
Allen-Bradley PLC
The 460ETCTCP allows you to move ASCII data inside TCP/IP packets to an Allen-Bradley
PLC. It’s a simple solution that allows you to pass TCP socket connection data easily to an
Allen-Bradley PLC. It allows you to interrupt the ASCII data strings into meaningful data types
for before being deliver to the PLC.
Best of all the product is Made in the USA, is always in stock and comes with 5 year warranty.
How Does the Data Move In and Out of the PLC?
Incoming and outgoing Ethernet TCP/IP data is mapped to and from user defined Tags or
Registers in the data table of your Allen-Bradley PLC. You allocate two areas of tags or
register blocks in your Allen-Bradley PLC. One area is a user defined block accepting data
from Ethernet TCP/IP data. The other area is a block the gateway reads and passes to the
Ethernet TCP/IP device(s).
If your device uses delimiters, the 460ETCTCP can be configured to automatically remove the
delimiters on incoming messages and add delimiters back in on outgoing messages. No need
to deal with the delimiters in your PLC. If you need to parse your data, the 460ETCTCP can
parse a string of Ethernet TCP/IP data in up to 50 segments by delimiter or offset.
It’s designed to be a simple tool to integrate ASCII data into an AB PLC.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ETCTCP provides an option to access those Ethernet TCP/IP devices that always
seem to creep into your architecture no matter how hard you try to keep them out. With the
460ETCTCP you can easily connect to those devices with your Allen-Bradley PLC.
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 support 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.
