The DF1 Router is able to transfer data from a DF1 device to a maximum of three Logix controllers. The module operates in one of four modes, simplifying the configuration for all applications.​

​Mode Description​ Message Initiator​
​Transparent PCCC The DF1 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 DF1 Router 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 DF1 Router transfers data between a DF1 device and a number of Logix tags, using a preconfigured scheduled. No Logix or remote device configuration is required. ​DF1 Router
​Unscheduled The DF1 Router transfers messages received from a Logix Message Instruction. ​Logix (Msg)

 

The DF1 Router is configured using the Aparian Slate application. Slate offers various configuration methods, including a controller tag browser.

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 module uses isolated RS232 for DF1 communication providing better noise immunity. The RS232 port also uses a terminal block for convenient installation. The module can also be used in systems with redundant DF1 pathways.

A built-in webserver provides detailed diagnostics of system configuration and operation, including the display of received DF1 communication packets, without the need for any additional software.

The IP-Point-HART module can convert any analog device into either EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP, CC-Link, or DNP3 TCP/UDP protocols. This includes 4 to 20 mA input and output devices with or without HART communications as well as 0 to 20 ma devices without HART.

The IP-Point-Hart is available in Input or Output variations:​

  • A-IP.HART-I for HART input devices like process instruments.
  • A-IP.HART-O for HART output devices like valve positioners.

The waterproof module is designed to screw directly into the HART field device simplifying installation. Power (24V) and Ethernet is connected to the device through the use of industry standard M12 connectors. The M12 connectors are supplied with the device and can be connected in the field.

The conversion to EtherNet/IP enables a HART device to be added directly into a Rockwell Automation Logix IO tree. The Modbus-TCP option enables a HART field device to be viewed as a Modbus Slave. The DNP3 option converts a HART field device into a DNP3 Outstation. The DNP3 option, also supports Secure Authentication, ensuring secure communications across the Ethernet network.

The HART module also supports CC-Link and can operate as a CC-Link Slave allowing a CC-Link Master (eg. Mitsubishi controller) to connect to it and exchange data with the HART field device.

In addition, a rich collection of process and diagnostic information is provided directly into Logix, without the use of any explicit messaging. HART commands can also be relayed to the device using an EtherNet/IP message relay object. A DTM (Device Type Manager) is available further simplifying device configuration and management using an FDT frame. A built-in webserver provides detailed diagnostics of system configuration and operation as well as field device specific diagnostics.
