Gateways feature transparent interfaces to DeviceNet, Ethernet
March 18, 2003
The Controller-E series has been expanded to include new gateways with DeviceNet™ and Ethernet interfaces. The Controller-E gateway can connect two full AS-i systems, up to 868 I/O points, as one node on a higher-level network without the need for additional programming software. The gateways fully support all of the AS-i 2.1 specifications and provide detailed diagnostics on its easy-to-read, integrated backlit LCD display. The Controller-E gateway with an Ethernet interface uses the industry standard RJ-45 connector and Modbus on TCP/IP protocol.
