The Linking Device performs an intelligent protocol conversion and presents the serial data to the Logix PLC as easily processed I/O data. This offloads your Logix PLC from working with additional calculations.
The Linking Device is capable of converting almost any type of serial protocol such as Modbus RTU, DF1, ASCII, or any other type of proprietary; Request/Response or Produce/Consume protocol.
With its unique Studio 5000® Logix designer integration, everything is accessible from within Studio 5000, including then serial network configuration. No extra 3rd-party software, licenses or programming required.
EtherNet/IP Linking Devices are configured using a Custom Add On Profile for Studio 5000 Logix Designer. This dynamically generates data structures for each device connected. No ladder logic files (add on instructions) needed.
Furthermore, it also supports automatic generation of named and structured Studio 5000 controller tags, which eliminates the need to create alias tags
The Linking Device has the very latest ODVA EtherNet/IP adapter functionality
