The Perfect Link for Data Communication – The Industrial Gateway

DCS The Perfect Link for Data Communication Weidlmuller 1 400

July 8, 2022

 

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.

Features and Benefits

  • •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
  • •Context-Sensitive help: Fully searchable with images and step-by-step instructions only one click away

 

Product at a glance

  • •The Industrial Gateway supports 12 protocols (the equivalent of 15 one-to-one protocol gateway devices). The more protocols you need bridged, the more savings you gain.
  • •The Industrial Gateway features 2 or 4 serial ports that operate simultaneously. This allows you to connect multiple devices with a single gateway. Additionally, each port can be configured with a different protocol.
  • •The Industrial Gateway features two Ethernet ports that supports multiple protocols, simultaneously. This allows you to connect multiple devices with a single gateway.
  • •The Industrial Gateway supports data transfers to and from any port, in any combination (Ethernet to Ethernet, Ethernet to Serial, Serial to Serial).

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
