With one Ethernet port, the Modbus TCP protocol driver can interface many different protocols into Schneider Electric Quantum processors as well other solutions supporting the protocol. Supports both Client and Server connections, and when coupled with the Web option provides a web/ftp interface. The EGD modules offer one-to-one or one-to-many interconnect scenarios. Data is exchanged between devices and/or networks using a shared common database and an efficient but powerful wireless protocol. This common database provides the "backbone" communications for various field devices using different networks.
An ideal solution for the many applications where Modbus TCP connectivity can be used to integrate GE Ethernet Global Data devices into a system; Supports both Client and Server, enabling connection to other Modbus TCP devices; In combination with the GE Ethernet Global Data device support, provides a powerful interface to the many EtherNet/IP devices in use in the industrial marketplace today; Applications found in most industries, especially Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food Processing.
