EtherNet/IP to IEC 60870-5-104 Gateway

PLX32-EIP-104

EtherNet/IP to IEC 60870-5-104 Gateway

PLX32-EIP-104

Integration of EtherNet/IP products into IEC 60870-5-104 networks can be a challenge, but not with ProSoft Technology’s PLX32-EIP-104 gateway.

The gateway has dual Ethernet ports, providing the option to have one Ethernet port communicating on both EtherNet/IP™ and IEC 60870-5-104 networks, or independent communication ports for each protocol.

The gateway provides powerful communications on EtherNet/IP networks, operating as either a Client or a Server to various devices such as PLC’s, Drives, and various other equipment supporting the EtherNet/IP protocol.
