Adding these protocol gateway devices to existing network infrastructures enables users to build a seamless data path between otherwise incompatible network devices and extend their useful life without a heavy price tag or major upgrade. The gateways are easy to set up and configure and are compatible with Siemens’ and Rockwell HMI/PLCs. They have a built-in diagnostic tool that can connect data and monitor the status of connected devices in real time. This allows operators to utilize collected data, analyze it, and find suitable solutions to prevent potential problems. Instrument data from each machine/device can be sent via EtherNet/IP or PROFINET PLC protocol conversion for further analysis in order to monitor the condition of in-service equipment. Their fast deployment not only facilitates a productive workflow, but also enables easy machine automation management and maintenance on the shop floor. This is a crucial function for predictive maintenance management.
