ANC-700: DeviceNet to Modbus RTU Gateway Converter.

Automation Networks is a Technology company providing a wide variety of quality Industrial Networking products for the most popular Ethernet & Fieldbus Industrial Networks. These include Allen-Bradley Ethernet CSP, Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet, Data Highway Plus (DH+); Siemens Profibus & Profinet; Schneider Electric Modbus RTU & Modbus TCP/IP.

he Automation Networks ANC-700 is a Modbus Master/Slave Gateway to DeviceNet (Slave) which allows information to be transferred seamlessly between DeviceNet and RS-485 networks with minimal configuration requirements. The ANC-200 provides a DeviceNet port (5-conductor pluggable terminal block style) and an RS-485 port (4-wire terminal block style ). The RS-485 port supports multiple protocols. PLC-style logical, arithmetic and filtering database manipulation operations allow the construction of complex autonomous data conditioning functions.

The ANC-200 is part of the ANC Gateway Series product family. The ANC platform is designed to provide a uniform interface, configuration and application experience. This commonality reduces the users learning curve, reducing commissioning time while simplifying support.

RS485 Serial Protocols: The ANC-700 Gateway has the flexibility to choose Modbus Master/Slave as well as other RS485 serial protocols which include: Modbus Sniffer, A.O. Smith AIN, A.O. Smith PDNP, BACnet MS/TP Client, BACnet MS/TP Server, TCS Basys Master, MSA Chillgard Monitor, DMX 512-Master, DMX-512 Slave, M-Bus Master, Metasys N2 Master, Metasys N2 Slave, Siemens FLN Master, Siemens FLN Slave, Sullair Master, Toshiba ASD Master, Toshiba PLC Master.

Automation Networks ANC-700 Modbus RTU to DeviceNet Highlights:

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
