EC: Ethernet-to-Belden 9463 Blue Hose Industrial Media Converter

Network Integration — Ethernet Hardware: The Industrial Media Converter lets users run Allen-Bradley remote I/O and EtherNet/IP data simultaneously on existing Blue Hose cable, which enables them to upgrade their legacy PLC system in phases during scheduled downtime. This is a Control Engineering 2015 Engineers’ Choice award winner.


ProSoft Technology 9463 Blue Hose Industrial Media ConverterThe Ethernet-to-Belden 9463 Blue Hose Industrial Media Converter uses patented technology to help companies upgrade their legacy Allen-Bradley remote I/O systems with minimal downtime. You no longer have to run a new Ethernet infrastructure which can include installing fiber optic cables. After the media converters are installed, companies are able to run remote I/O and EtherNet/IP data at the same time on existing Blue Hose cable, which allows them to upgrade individual nodes during scheduled downtime. The units are plug-and-play with no configuration needed. They support Ethernet data rates up to 30 Mbps and support a maximum distance of up to 2,000 ft. Repeaters are available to support distances up to 10,000 ft. Our media converter is one of many Migration Solutions that ProSoft Technology offers that give users the freedom to upgrade their systems at their own pace, minimizing the risk of unscheduled, costly downtime.
