Encompass Program

Rockwell Automation Encompass Program

As an Encompass Partner with Rockwell Automation, Aparian develops, distributes, and supports various innovative products that complement Rockwell Automation's products and solutions. Aparian products seamlessly integrate and operate with Rockwell Automation platforms, offering great ease of use, and allowing the customer to benefit fully from the partnership. 

 

The following products are part of Rockwell Automation's Encompass Program:

 

DF1 Router

The DF1 Router provides intelligent data routing between EtherNet/IP and DF1 which simplifies the migration from PLC2, PLC3, PLC5, and SLC systems to ControlLogix or CompactLogix platforms, where a DF1 interface is required.

The DF1 Router can be used as a replacement for the 1761-NET-ENI.

DH485 Router

The DH485 Router provides intelligent data routing between EtherNet/IP and DH485 which can help simplify the migration from PLC5, and SLC systems to ControlLogix or CompactLogix platforms, where a DFH485 interface is required.

The DH485 Router can be used to replace the 1761-NET-AIC.

IP Point HART In / Out​

The IP-Point-HART module can convert any analog device into either EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP,​​ or DNP3 TCP/UDP protocols. This includes 4 to 20 mA input and output devices with or without HART communications as well as 0 to 20 ma devices without HART.

The IP-Point-Hart is available in Input or Output variations:​

  • A-IP.HART-I for HART input devices like process instruments.
  • A-IP.HART-O for HART output devices like valve positioners.

The waterproof module is designed to screw directly into the HART field device simplifying installation. Power (24V) and Ethernet is connected to the device through the use of industry standard M12 connectors. The M12 connectors are supplied with the device and can be connected in the field.

The conversion to EtherNet/IP enables a HART device to be added directly into a Rockwell Automation Logix IO tree. The Modbus-TCP option enables a HART field device to be viewed as a Modbus Slave. The DNP3 option converts a HART field device into a DNP3 Outstation. The DNP3 option, also supports Secure Authentication, ensuring secure communications across the Ethernet network.

Time Sync

The module is a stand-alone device allowing it to operate across various platforms. The module can also seamlessly connect and integrate with Rockwell Automation’s Allen Bradley equipment. The module can operate in either a Logix “owned” or standalone mode. In stand-alone mode the module can be configured and connected to an Ethernet network to accurately synchronize devices using 1588 PTP and NTP. With a Logix connection the input and output assemblies will provide timing, positioning, and diagnostic information which will be available in the Logix controller environment in addition to the PTP and NTP services.

DNP3

The DNP3 Router provides intelligent data routing between EtherNet/IP and DNP3 (serial, Ethernet UDP, or Ethernet TCP). The DNP3 Router allows the user to integrate DNP3 devices over a secure link into a Rockwell Logix platform (e.g. ControlLogix or CompactLogix) with minimal effort.

The DNP3 Router can now also be used as a DNP3 Outstation with a Micro800 (M850 & M820) controller.

Modbus Router / Modbus Router 485

The Modbus Router provides intelligent data routing between EtherNet/IP and Modbus (serial Modbus-RTU or Ethernet Modbus-TCP). The Modbus Router allows the user to integrate Modbus devices into a Rockwell Logix platform (e.g. ControlLogix or CompactLogix) with minimal effort.

The Modbus Router is able to transfer data from various Modbus devices to a maximum of three Logix controllers. The module operates in one of three modes, simplifying the configuration for all applications.

XPosition Module

The XPosition Module provides an interface to high accuracy positioning equipment which can be used across a range of position sensitive applications. Any third party Device can be interfaced to, provided it supports NMEA communications over Ethernet.

The XPosition module provides a method for connecting high precision GPS and inertial navigati​on devices to Rockwell Automation’s Logix (ControlLogix and CompactLogix) family of controllers.

HDLC Router

The HDLC ​Router provides intelligent data routing between EtherNet/IP and HDLC (RS485) which can help the migration from GEM80 control systems to ControlLogix or CompactLogix platforms, where an HDLC interface is required.
