DH485 Router Modes
The DH485 Router is able to transfer data from a DH485 device to a maximum of three Logix controllers. The module operates in one of four modes, simplifying the configuration for all applications.
|Transparent PCCC||The DH485 Router will redirect DF1 PCCC messages to a Logix controller at a preconfigured EtherNet/IP path. Logix PLC Mapping configuration is also required.||Remote Device|
|Reactive Tag||The DH485Router will convert DF1 PCCC messages to Logix controller tag reads or tag writes. No Logix PLC Mapping configuration is required.||Remote Device|
|Scheduled Tag||The DH485 Router transfers data between a DH485 device and a number of Logix tags, using a preconfigured scheduled. No Logix or remote device configuration is required.||DH485 Router|
|Unscheduled||The DH485 Router transfers messages received from a Logix Message Instruction.||Logix (Msg)|
Free Configuration Software
The DH485 Router is configured using the Aparian Slate application. Slate offers various configuration methods, including a controller tag browser.
Add to IO Tree in RSLogix
The module can operate in both a Logix “owned” and standalone mode. With a Logix connection the input and output assemblies will provide additional diagnostics information which will be available in the Logix controller environment.
The DH485 Router can be used as a replacement for the 1761-NET-AIC. The router converts DH485 to EtherNet/IP directly so a DF1 is no longer required.
The module uses RS485 for DH485 communication. The RS485 port also uses a terminal block for convenient installation.
Status & Diagnostics
A built-in webserver provides detailed diagnostics of system configuration and operation, including the display of received DH485 communication packets, without the need for any additional software.
