The HTC Gateway provides intelligent data routing between EtherNet/IP and legacy Hitachi IO and Drive (RIW/ROW) systems.
This allows the user to integrate legacy Hitachi IO and Drives into a Rockwell Logix platform (e.g. ControlLogix or CompactLogix) with minimal effort.
The module can be configured to act as either a legacy Hitachi IO Master (RIOH Master), legacy Hitachi IO Slave (RIOH Slave), or legacy Hitachi Drive module. Data can easily be accessed in the Logix input and output assemblies.
The HTC Gateway is configured using the Aparian Slate application. This program can be downloaded from www.aparian.com free of charge.
The module also provides a range of statistics to help fault find any problems. The Hitachi interface port uses a terminal block for convenient installation.
A built-in webserver provides detailed diagnostics of system configuration and operation, including the display of Hitachi interface operation and communication statistics, without the need for any additional software.
