EtherNet/IP to Siemens Industrial Ethernet

PLX31-EIP-SIE

ProSoft Technology’s EtherNet/IP™ to Siemens® Industrial Ethernet communication gateway allows high-speed bi-directional data transfers between EtherNet/IP™-enabled controllers or devices and Siemens® S7 PACs, including S7-400s, S7-300s, S7-200s and S7-1200 PACs.

In addition, the gateway includes several features, including data prioritization, that allow for simplified integration, reduced commissioning time and optimized performance.

Features and Benefits

  • Data prioritization: Multiple I/O connections allow you to set RPIs for status and/or control data, optimizing Ethernet bandwidth.
  • Includes an embedded EDS Add-On Profile, allowing for simplified integration and reduced commissioning time.
  • Includes a SD card slot (SD card optional) for storing configuration files. This can be used for disaster recovery.
  • ProSoft Discovery Service: This utility allows your PC to see the gateway and change its default IP address without being on the same subnet.
