The DataLink GW1000-ABEIP is a gateway between both Ethernet/IP and AB Ethernet to AB’s DH+ Network.

The GW1000 interfaces any newer AB Ethernet/IP & AB Ethernet PLCs (ie. SLC 5/05, Compactlogix, Micrologix or PLC-5E) or MMI/SCADA/Programming package to any device/node on AB’s DH+.

This gateway is a cost-effective alternative to the AB Controllogix Gateway (1756-ENBT and 1756-RIO).

Applications include:

  • SCADA/MMI/Programming Software (RLSINX/LOGIX/VIEW,Wondware, Kepware, Citect, Intellution, et. all) packages using AB Ethernet Drivers can read/write data from/to multiple DH+ nodes.
  • Any AB Ethernet & Ethernet/IP PLC (MicroLogix, SLC 5/05, CompactLogix, FlexLogix, PLC-5E, ControlLogix) as Master will be able to send either read or write MSG (message) instructions to any DH+ PLC (SLC 5/04, PLC-5).
  • DH+ as Master allows applications such as Panelview on DH+ to message SLC 5/05 on Ethernet.

For details, pricing, or to find out if this solution is suitable for your application, please contact us.

The GW1000 allow multiple Ethernet/IP and AB Ethernet Application to message Multiple DH+ Nodes.

Compact and Lightweight:
Palm-sized, portable freestanding Din Rin/Desktop Controller with USB, AC/DC power option.

Easy Configuration:
All setup is done via Web screen or Telnet.

Cost efficient:
Replace Controllogix (1756-DHRIO/1756-ENBT) functionality and reduces the need to upgrade Legacy DH+ PLCs to newer AB Ethernet Processors.
