The 5201-MNET-ASCII stand-alone DIN-rail mounted protocol gateway provides one Ethernet port and up to four ASCII configurable serial ports. The Modbus TCP protocol driver can interface many different protocols into Schneider Electric Quantum processors as well other devices supporting the protocol. Supports both Client and Server connections, and when coupled with the Web option provides a web/ftp interface also. The ASCII protocol driver permits the module to interface to many ASCII devices. Each ASCII port on the module is configurable to send and/or receive ASCII strings, each supporting its own individual serial network.
The MNET-ASCII modules are an ideal solution for the many applications where Modbus TCP connectivity can be used to integrate ASCII generic serial input devices into a system; In combination with the ASCII device support, the module provides a powerful interface to the many ASCII input devices in use in the industrial marketplace today; Applications found in most industries, especially Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food Processing.
