ProLinx Modbus Master/Slave (4 ports) to DF1 Master/Slave (4 ports) 5102-MCM4-DFCM4

Type:  Network Gateway
Description:  The ProLinx family Modbus Master/Slave to DF1 Master/Slave communications module (5102-MCM4-DFCM4) creates a powerful connection between Modbus Master/Slave and DF1 Master/Slave networks and devices. The module is a stand-alone DIN rail-mounted protocol gateway that provides four serial ports, each individually configurable as a Modbus or DF1 Master or Slave. The Modbus (MCM) protocol driver supports Master and Slave implementations of the protocol. All Modbus serial ports are individually configurable, providing a very powerful and flexible host or device interface solution. The DF1 (DFCM) protocol driver supports Master or Slave implementations of the protocol on each DF1 port. All DF1 ports are individually configurable, providing a great deal of flexibility.
Connectivity:  Modbus
Features:  Fully configurable, allowing any of its four serial ports to be configured as either a Master or Slave utilizing either the DF1 or Modbus Protocols; Providesapplication flexibility as the module can be used as a data concentrator (when configuring all 4 ports for the same protocol); Database can be shared between the DF1 and Modbus networks to allow the module to work as a bridge between the two different protocols; Applications for the module are found in most industries especially the Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food Processing.
Specifications:  module and is used as a conduit to pass information from a device on one network to one or more devices on another network; Application Data Area is used to store and retrieve data by the protocol drivers and for data exchange between protocols. The database is used as a source for write commands to remote devices and holds data collected from the remote devices. Commands defined in the configuration file (stored in the configuration data area) control how the data is to be handled in the database; Status Data Area is used to store error codes, counters, and port status information for each port; Configuration Data Area contains module configuration information such as port configuration, network information, and command configuration.
