Ethernet IP / Modbus TCP Gateway

Communicate with Modbus RTU devices on an Ethernet IP or Modbus TCP Network


The Anybus Communicator for EtherNet/IP and Modbus-TCP allows the user to take almost any serial device and have it communicate to an EtherNet/IP or Modbus-TCP network. The Anybus Communicator is conformance tested to current Ethernet/IP and Modbus-TCP specifications guaranteeing network compatibility. It acts as a device adapter on the network and presents the serial data to the master controller as easily processed I/O data. The 2-port Ethernet switch allows daisy chaining and removes the need for external switches.
