Industrial media converter allows Ethernet over A-B Remote IO
ProSoft Technology's Ethernet to Belden Blue Hose Industrial Media Converter allows upgrades to Allen-Bradley Remote I/O systems with minimal downtime by running EtherNet/IP communications over the existing A-B Remote I/O network.
Industrial Media Converter by ProSoft Technology is designed to help companies upgrade control system communications with minimal downtime. Once the converters are installed, companies can run Allen-Bradley Remote I/O (from Rockwell Automation) and EtherNet/IP (an ODVA Ethernet protocol) data simultaneously on the same cable. This will allow upgrade of individual nodes at a pace that makes sense for the application.
The Ethernet to Belden Blue Hose Industrial Media Converters units are plug and play with no configuration needed. The converters offer 57.6 K and 115.2 K communication rates and a maximum distance of 1,300 ft with simultaneous Ethernet and A-B Remote I/O data. Repeaters are available for networks with distances up to 10,000 ft.
The converters are the latest example of phased migration solutions from ProSoft Technology, the company said, providing the freedom to complete necessary upgrades on schedules that make the best business sense.
