Economical Solution for Industrial Modbus TCP/RTU/ASCII Network Integration

PLANET has added the Industrial Modbus TCP/IP Protocol to its easily-integrated industrial management level products that come with SCADA/HMI system and other data acquisition systems on factory floors. Moreover, the industrial IT SNMP network is upgraded to the industrial automation Modbus TCP/IP network. PLANET industrial management level products with the Modbus TCP/IP Protocol offer flexible network connectivity solutions for the industrial automation environment.

To complete the industrial automation environment application solution, PLANET has announced a first industrial level 4-port RS232/422/485 Modbus Gateway, IMG-2400T, a bridge that converts between Modbus TCP/IP Protocol and Modbus RTU/ASCII Protocol. It features a wide operating temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C and a compact but rugged IP40 metal housing.

A Conversion Bridge for Flexible Network Deployment 

The IMG-2100T can be a conversion bridge between the equipment with the Modbus RTU/ASCII Protocol and the administrator workstations that run the Modbus TCP/IP Protocol. The RS232/422/485 serial interface of the IMG-2100T provides the Modbus RTU/ASCII operation mode and various baud rate options to meet the demand of integration between the Modbus TCP/IP Protocol, Modbus RTU Master/Slave Protocol and Modbus ASCII Master/Slave Protocol.

In addition, the effective integration solution of Modbus Ethernet devices, Modbus serial equipment or multi Modbus master / slave in an industrial hybrid network brings the following:

  • Master mode supports up to 32 TCP slave connection requests
  • Slave mode supports up to 32 TCP master connections

RTU/ASCII Master to Multi Modbus TCP/IP Slaves

The IMG-2100T can act as a bridge between the industrial RTU/ASCII master equipment and the multi-industrial TCP/IP slave equipment in a Modbus TCP/IP networking environment to control multi-industrial TCP/IP slave equipment via the industrial RTU/ASCII master equipment.

Multi Modbus TCP/IP Master to RTU/ASCII Slaves

The IMG-2100T can operate as a bridge between the multi-industrial TCP/IP master equipment and the industrial RTU/ASCII slave equipment in a Modbus TCP/IP networking environment to control the industrial RTU/ASCII slave equipment via the multi-industrial TCP/IP master equipment.
