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.​

​Mode Description​ Message Initiator​
​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.

1761-NET-AIC Replacement

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.  

Simple Installation

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.

The J1939 Router enables a Logix controller to not only receive multiple PGNs (Parameter Group Number) data from J1939 devices, but also operate as multiple J1939 devices producing data on the J1939 network.

J1939 data is automatically formatted and scaled to engineering units when exchanged with Logix.

Configuration is simplified by combining Aparian's Direct-To-Tag technology with the integrated J1939 database. This allows a user to browse to the required PGN and map it directly to a Logix tag.

The J1939 Router is configured using the Aparian Slate application. Slate can be used to create the required UDT (user-defined data types) containing all component SPN (Suspect Parameter Numbers) in the L5X format, which can easily be imported in Studio 5000.

The J1939 Router is packed with diagnostic information including an on-board packet capture utility, PGN monitor, and node live list.

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.

A built-in webserver provides detailed diagnostics of system configuration and operation.

The DeviceNet Router is able to asynchronously exchange data between a DeviceNet polling master (scanner) and an Ethernet PCCC device. The sizes of the DeviceNet’s produced and consumed data are independently configurable from 0 to 128 bytes each.

The consumed (DeviceNet) data can then be mapped to a PLC5 type address file, e.g. N33, and then read by an Ethernet device e.g. a PanelView. Similarly, the produced data (DeviceNet) can also be mapped to a PLC5 type address file, to which an Ethernet device could write.

In addition, the DeviceNet Router can be used to transfer parameters of a DeviceNet device directly to Logix tags. The scaling of the parameter values will either be extracted from the EDS file imported or can be manually updated by the user.

The module also provides a range of statistics and an on-board DeviceNet traffic analyser to assist with fault finding.

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

The DeviceNet Router is configured using the Aparian Slate application. This program can be downloaded from www.aparian.com free of charge.

 

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.

The module can be configured to be either a CANopen Master or CANopen Slave allow the user to not only integrate CANopen devices into a Logix or Modbus system, but to also allow the user to use Logix or Modbus devices in an existing CANopen network (by using the CANopen Router in Slave mode).

In a Logix system the module uses Direct-To-Tag technology allowing CANopen devices to exchange data with a Logix controller without the need to write any ladder or application code in Studio 5000.

Slate allows the user to map up to 16 PDOs per CANopen Slave to Logix tags which will automatically be updated using Direct-To-Tag. When operating as a Modbus TCP Slave the module will provide various Modbus Holding registers to allow data exchange with a CANopen Slave. 

Slate will also provide the user with the ability to change all parameters (using SDOs) of the slave based on the EDS file. 

The module also provides a range of statistics to simplify the diagnostic process as well as a CANopen packet capture for remote diagnosis.
