ProSoft Technology’s PROFINET® to Modbus® or Modbus® TCP gateways allow your PROFINET-based Siemens® or GE controller to connect to any Modbus or Modbus TCP-compatible device. With millions of PROFINET nodes worldwide and even more Modbus/Modbus TCP devices, the need for a gateway that will allow these two widely used protocols to communicate is self-evident. ProSoft offers four versions to give you the best solution for your application.




Modbus TCP/IP Two-Port to PROFINET Device Gateway


PLX32-MBTCP-PND Schematic

Have an OEM piece of equipment and do not want to change all the IP addresses just to have it communicate with your current PLC? This version offers bi-directional data transfers between a PROFINET Controller and Modbus TCP devices. The dual Ethernet ports allow you to pass data between Modbus TCP and PROFINET devices that are on different subnets.
