up to 5 Allen-Bradley
 Map data from up to 300
user defined tags or
register blocks in your
 Map BACnet/IP Analog,
Binary, Character String,
and Multi-state data
directly to tags or
registers in your AllenBradley PLC
 Effortless Browser
Based Configuration, no
programming software is
 Simple data translation
With the 460ETCBC you are making a direct connection between BACnet/IP 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’s
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 BACnet/IP. The other
area is full of read only tags or register blocks to send data to your BACnet/IP Servers. You
directly map BACnet/IP 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 460ETCBC provides an option to connect BACnet/IP server device data to your AllenBradley PLCs without 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 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.

allows you to manipulate
data as it passes
between protocols
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.
