It works even with networks that speak different protocols, and its master-to-master data exchange allows PLCs to exchange data easily. The device can allow isolated networks to pass data between them (up to 256 bytes), even if the networks are on different Ethernet subnets or using different protocols such as Modbus TCP, PROFINET or EtherNet/IP. Additionally, by utilizing the isolated Ethernet network, it offers the ability to set up a NAT (Network Address Translation) router for up to five IP addresses. The devices also include an embedded webserver for a streamlined setup and configuration process. It offers 16 digital inputs that are available to both networks and allows data transfer speeds of up to 100 megabits per second. The spanner comes in a glass-fiber reinforced housing with fully potted electronics and offers a IP65, IP67, or IP69K rated housing.
