IMC-BHx-AC

ProSoft Technology’s IMC-BHx-AC Industrial Media Converters allow users to simultaneously run EtherNet/IP™ and A-B Remote I/O data on existing Belden 9463 Blue Hose media.

Once Industrial Media Converters have been added to the existing system, users will be able to deploy a phased upgrade of their legacy control system. A Logix system can be deployed on top of the existing Remote I/O infrastructure allowing users to upgrade their legacy I/O, drives, HMIs and other end devices. Upgrading of your control system can now be done during scheduled downtime, saving time and money.
