Modbus to DeviceNet Converter

Sales of this product has been discontinued. Please contact us to discuss alternatives.

The D485 Modbus to DeviceNet Converter acts as a gateway between a Modbus RTU network and a DeviceNet network. Integration of Modbus devices into DeviceNet networks is enabled without loss of functionality, control, and reliability, both when retrofitting to existing equipment as well as when setting up new installations. The D485 Modbus to DeviceNet Converter is an external DIN-rail mounted device which provides DeviceNet network connectivity via a serial RS232/RS422/RS485 interface. The D485 is configured using the P485/D485 configuration cable and the EnerVista D485/D485 Setup Software.
