AN-X-TI, EtherNet/IP to Texas Instruments Remote I/O Master Gateway

EtherNet/IP to Texas Instruments Remote I/O Master Gateway

AN-X-TI

The EtherNet/IP to Texas Instruments Remote I/O Master gateway allows an Allen-Bradley Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) to control TI 505 Remote I/O. This gateway allows a phased migration approach to be used when upgrading or replacing TI Remote Base Controllers. The gateway provides automatic creation of the TI Remote I/O scan-list and generates the associated RSLogix 5000 tags reducing engineering effort. Once the new PAC is commissioned the legacy I/O can be upgraded one module or one rack at a time as scheduled downtime is available. This gateway minimizes the risk of excessive downtime when upgrading legacy control systems.

Specifications

TI 505 Features:

  • This gateway configures through a web browser (No special configuration software required)
  • This gateway scans up to 15 Remote I/O bases and supports both high and low density I/O modules
  • Auto-Configuration feature discovers bases and I/O points reducing configuration errors
  • Auto-Configuration files are customizable providing additional flexibility for the application and migration phases
  • Supports offline configuration through a .CSV file
  • Ability to view configuration and diagnostics through a web browser enabling remote monitoring or troubleshooting
  • Multi-colored LED that indicates the status of the RIO network connection
 

EtherNet/IP Features:

  • Supports up to 16 Class 1 I/O connections to reliably transport data to the PAC
  • Each Class 1 connection can have a unique RPI from 5 - 750 mSec allowing the PAC to process the I/O data efficiently
  • Auto-Configuration feature maps the discovered Modicon I/O points into tags in the PAC controller
  • Auto-Configuration files are customizable providing additional flexibility for the application and migration phases
  • Ability to view configuration and diagnostics through a web browser enabling remote monitoringor troubleshooting
  • Diagnostic data can be mapped into PAC memory making this ddata available to HMIs
  • Orange and Green Ethernet network LEDs to show link and activity
