Product Information

Product Description

The DL6000 gateway is the new improved version of the DL4500.  The Lightweight, Din Rail Mounted, DC powered DL6000 network interface bridge interfaces your Modbus TCP (Ethernet) Network to AB's DataHighway Plus (DH+), extending the life of Allen-Bradley PLC's that do not have Ethernet Interfaces. The DL6000 solution allows an Allen-Bradly PLC, such as the PLC3 to access Modbus TCP server devices. It can also allow a Modbus TCP Client device, such as SCADA Server, to acquire data from PLCs or devices on a DH+ Network. 

Modbus Registers and Coils  are mapped to Allen-Bradley DH+ Datafiles using the EQ32 Configuration software.
