ASCII Ethernet TCP/IP to PLC5E

Smart PLC5E Connection Solution for Ethernet TCP/IP data
Let’s me be very honest. There are gaps in the Rockwell Automation architecture. Those gaps are designed to move you up their automation product line into higher performance higher cost products. You can’t blame them for this model but there’s no reason you can’t find an alternative way to ad performance without purchasing expensive rack solutions.

That’s where the 490NBX comes in.

With the 490NBX you can now quickly and easily connect TCP devices to your PLC5E PLC. The 490NBX exists for one purpose and one purpose only; Move data between a number of TCP devices and a Compact Logix PLC. This means you will never have to deal with 30 additional features you don’t need. You wont have to search through a hundred page manual, or burn the midnight oil to set up this unit. The 490NBX is designed for a single purpose so that it can be quickly and easily be configured and deployed.

What Makes it so Simple to Use?
Your data transfer is configured via your internet browser. Simply log into your unit using an included discovery tool and you are ready to configure the unit with the web browser interface. You set the ip address of your TCP devices. You define the data that gets transferred and you pick the tag it should end up in the PLC. There is no software to download or code to futz with. It sounds simple, and it is, that’s the point.

The 490NBX is the smart connection solution for moving data from TCP devices to a PLC5E PLC. Saving you money and increasing the abilities of the PLCs within your automation processes.
