GW1500-DH485E  Mult-Protocol Gateway  $1,395 USD list.

Datalink Ethernet TCP/IP to DH-485

The Datalink GW1500-DH485E is a gateway between an Ethernet TCP/IP Network and AB’s DH-485 Network. This cost-efficient solution extends the life of legacy Allen-Bradley PLC2, PLC3 and SLC/03s by eliminating the need to upgrade each PLC with an Ethernet processor.

The DataLink GW1500 Controller enables users to run MMI applications or program/monitor PLCs & SLCs on a DH-485 Network from an Ethernet LAN station. Tested applications include RSLinx,RSLogix,RSView, Wonderware, & Citect.

The GW1500 can be converted between several protocols with an easy firmware change (ie. DF1, ASCII, Modbus, ModTCP, AB Ethernet, Ethernet/IP) to multiple DH+ /DH-485 nodes.  You may wish to program via RSLINX (AB Ethernet driver) remotely over Ethernet with our GW1500-ABEIP firmware or switch to RSLINX (1770-KF2) serial DF1 to DH+ using our GW1500-DHP1 firmware.

Compact and Lightweight:
The smallest, portable freestanding Din Rail serial interface available.

Easy Configuration:
All parameters are menu-driven.

Cost efficient:
Reduces the need to purchase an AB Ethernet Processor for each PLC/SLC.
