Advantech has launched the new Fieldbus Gateway EKI-1242 series.
The fieldbus gateways are designed for reliable protocol extensibility and seamless integration with existing network devices. The EKI-1242 series support widely used industrial protocols such as PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT for field device integration. They help plant managers create a seamless interconnection between industrial protocols, making the usage of existing field devices more flexible. Also, they efficiently connect field devices to Ethernet network infrastructure, providing redundant and management function for central management.
By implementing Advantech's Fieldbus solution, traditional factories can be transformed into intelligent green plants. With the features of integration, flexibility and connectivity, Advantech Fieldbus gateways and WebAccess/NMS and WebAccess/SCADA bring seamless conversion between individual industrial protocols and allow the connection of devices with different protocols for diagnosis, analysis and management.
