The new Industrial Gateway Communications Device by Weidmuller is the solution for interference-free data transmission over long distances. It is a single solution for connecting multiple devices, across multiple protocols. In systems where the installed base includes Industrial Ethernet and/or serial protocols, establishing communication across devices is critical and upgrading the equipment isn’t always feasible.
The Industrial Gateway is the most cost-effective way to move data between multiple PLCs and slave (server) devices, each with a different protocol, saving you time, money, and the headache of configuring multiple gateway devices.
The industrial Gateway supports 12 protocols (the equivalent of 15 one-to-one gateway devices). The more protocols you need bridged, the more savings you gain. It features 2 or 4 serial ports that operate simultaneously, allowing you to connect multiple devices with a single gateway. Additionally, each port can be configured with a different protocol. Weidmuller’s Industrial Gateway supports data transfers to and from any port, in any combination (ethernet to ethernet, ethernet to serial, serial to serial).
Single Solution: Multiple protocols, multiple communication ports, one box
Configurable: Transfer data to and from any port, in any combination
Multiple serial ports: Maximum device connectivity
Cost-effective: The functionality of multiple gateways for the price of one
Intuitive navigation: Consistent configuration for any protocol conversions
No software to install: Browser-based configuration
No PLC programming: Transfer data without editing PLC code
