Any Communicator RTU

Key Features:

Any communicator RTU is designed to allow industrial devices with a serial Modbus-RTU interface to be connected to any major fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks through an intelligent conversion between the serial protocol of the automation device and the chosen industrial network

• Once a configuration is completed it can be re-used for many other industrial networks
• Network enables almost any automation device with a serial RS-232/422/485 Modbus-RTU interface
• No hardware or software changes are required for the connected automation devicel
• Available for all major fieldbus and industrial Ethernet networks
• Compatible with all leading PLC’s from manufacturers such as, Siemens, Allen Bradley, Schneider etc..
• Complete protocol conversion performed by the Communicator, no extensive PLC function blocks required
• One Communicator can connect upto 31 serial devices using its RS-485 interface
• Included Configuration Manager with an easy visual Modbus-RTU wizard. No programming required
• Global free technical support and consultancy
• Custom versions with pre-loaded configuration, colors and labels available on request
• 3 year product guarantee from date of shipment
