Web Gateway For Modbus/Ethernet Links

Jan. 12, 2006
The FactoryCast gateway is designed to connect Modbus serial devices to Ethernet networks.

The configurable and customizable Web-enabled gateway needs no infrastructure modifications to connect legacy Modbus serial-link and remoteaccess (modem) installations with Ethernet TCP/IP networks. The gateway also enables e-mail messages and alarm notifications from stand-alone applications. The ETG1000 supports all Telemecanique and Modicon-branded PLCs and devices. It eliminates the need for serial communication interfaces on third-party devices, as well as PC gateways. The embedded Web server in the gateway provides simple Web-browser access to machine-maintenance information, enabling remote diagnostics and repair services for machines.
