Serial Converter Supports Multiple RS-485 and Industrial Ethernet Protocols
Automation Networks announced the release of their ANC-300e Converter. The ANC-300e has the combined performance as an Ethernet and RS-485 serial converter. The gateway behaves like a protocol converter/translator that allows difficult data interchanges and connections between incompatible networks.
Supported RS-485 serial Protocols:
Modbus Sniffer, A.O. Smith AIN, A.O. Smith PDNP, BACnet MS/TPClient, BACnet MS/TP Server, TCS Basys Master, MSA Chillgard Monitor, DMX 512-Master, DMX-512 Slave, M-Bus Master, Metasys N2 Master, Metasys N2 Slave, Siemens FLN Master, Siemens FLN Slave, Sullair Master, Toshiba ASD Master, Toshiba PLC Master.
Supported Ethernet Protocols:
Ethernet/IP Client/Server, AB CSP Ethernet Client/Server, Modbus TCP/IP, Profinet IO, BACnet/IP BBMD, BACnet/IP Client, BACnet/IP Server, Baumer VeriSens Client, CC-Link IE SLMP Client, MELSEC Client/Server, Generic Socket Client/Server & GreenFumeHood Client.
ANC-300e is an easily configurable Ethernet / RS-485 converter gateway that provides integrated communication between all the above common industrial and commercial communication networks. As part of the ANC Gateway Converter Series, the ANC-300e provides a common platform which is convenient and easy to setup in all products.
The Automation Network ANC-300e Ethernet & Fieldbus Gateway Converter allows data to be seamlessly transferred between Ethernet to Ethernet and Ethernet to RS-485 networks with simple configuration.
