The PLX30 Ethernet and Serial Gateways from ProSoft are solutions for connecting end devices to an EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP/IP network. The gateways offer real-time, bi-directional data transfers between devices on dissimilar networks. They are stand-alone, DIN-rail mounted gateways that provide one Ethernet port for communication, remote configuration and diagnostics and up to four isolated serial ports. The gateways also come with an SD Card slot for storing configuration files. In the event of a failure, the SD card can be transferred to another gateway reducing downtime.
