DF1 Messaging Module

PLX51-DF1-MSG

The DF1 messaging module can be used in applications requiring DF1 to Logix messaging. The module can be used to communicate between PC’s or PLC’s using DF1™ or EtherNet/IP™.

Have a bunch of MicroLogix or SLC’s in your water or waste water treatment facility? DF1 Radio Modem protocol can be used for migrating old SLC’s and MicroLogix PLC’s to newer Logix based platforms over leased line modems. Start migrating the legacy equipment to new Logix based equipment with the help of ProSoft Technology’s DF1 Messaging Module.
