Modbus TCP/IP to PROFINET Device Gateway

PLX31-MBTCP-PND

The Modbus TCP/IP to PROFINET device gateway offers bi-directional data transfer between a PROFINET Controller and Modbus TCP/IP networks. The Modbus TCP/IP driver uses multiple clients and servers for faster data throughput. The PROFINET driver operates as a PROFINET device (slave).

The PLX31-MBTCP-PND gateways are stand-alone DIN-rail mounted units that provide one Ethernet port for communications, remote configuration, and diagnostics. The onboard SD Card slot (SD card optional) is used for storing configuration files that can be used for recovery, transferring the configuration to another gateway, or general configuration backup.
