AN-X2-MOD

The EtherNet/IP to Modicon S908 gateway allows an Allen- Bradley® Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) to control Modicon S908 I/O devices. The gateway allows a phased migration approach to be used when upgrading an S908 based Modicon 984, 584, or Quantum™ control system. The gateway provides automatic creation of the S908 scan-list and generates the associated Studio/RSLogix 5000 tags reducing engineering effort.

AN-X2-MOD

The EtherNet/IP to Modicon S908 gateway allows an Allen- Bradley® Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) to control Modicon S908 I/O devices. The gateway allows a phased migration approach to be used when upgrading an S908 based Modicon 984, 584, or Quantum™ control system. The gateway provides automatic creation of the S908 scan-list and generates the associated Studio/RSLogix 5000 tags reducing engineering effort.

Monitor mode allows verification of your conversion logic using live I/O data without impacting the running legacy system. Once the new PAC is commissioned, the legacy I/O can be upgraded one module or one rack at a time as scheduled downtime is available. This gateway minimizes the risk of excessive downtime when upgrading legacy control systems.

 

Features and Benefits

  • Configures through a web browser (No special configuration software required)
  • Customizable configuration files provide additional flexibility
  • Supports offline configuration through a .CSV file
  • Monitor mode enables testing and verification of PAC logic before controlling physical I/O, reducing the risk of production loss due to programming errors
  • View diagnostics with a web browser enabling remote monitoring and troubleshooting
