This brings the serial devices into the world of Ethernet, without disrupting the communication method. A gateway converts the protocol of one device to the protocol suitable for interoperability with another device or tool. Sometimes referred to as a protocol converter, it gives automation engineers an easy and cost-effective way to connect control systems and field devices. Variants are available with one, two, or four D-SUB 9 serial ports and one or two RJ45 Ethernet ports. Startup and configuration is simple using an embedded web server. To ensure secure communication, the devices include 256-bit AES encryption and optional authentication. The servers and gateways can operate between -40 to +70 C and have hazardous location approvals.
