Gateway for Harsh Environments

Oct. 28, 2010
Hilscher North America Inc. is pleased to announce the release of netBRICK, an IP67 rated gateway designed to provide industrial network connectivity in harsh environments.
Each unit utilizes M12 connectors for connectivity to leading industrial automation networks like CANopen, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS, CC-Link, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP, POWERLINK, PROFINET, SERCOS III, MB/RTU, ASCII, RS232-, RS422, and RS485. Each supported protocol conversion is pre-programmed making the mapping of I/O straightforward. netBRICK can be a Slave or Master device on the network. As a master, the system configuration tool is utilized for configuring the netBRICK.An IP67 rating ensures that this new gateway can tolerate high dust levels and exposure to liquids. The durable plastic housing can withstand long term effects like warping and a grout finish protects the netBRICK making it resistant to dust and humidity. The gateway is secured with lockdown screws and can be mounted inside or outside any cabinet installation located indoor or outdoor. Operating temperatures range from -20 °C to +70 °C. A carefully selection of electronic components ensures that the netBRICK can also resist high thermal loads and guarantees sustained operation in areas with varying temperatures. The compact and rugged design allows you to leverage cabinetless designs for added cost reduction and can be placed in areas where less compliant devices are restricted allowing for efficient routing of the bus to various automation cells throughout the plant floor. The netBRICK protocol converter is Class 1, Division 2 certified and meets UL, CE and Marine standards. These approvals guarantee resistance to shock, vibration and low electromagnetic interference while maintaining critical communications for your plant network.Hilscher -
