The Aparian DF1 Router can be used in place of the now obsolete 1761-NET-ENI module. The router can be used as programming link from a computer to a DF1 device or to route DF1 communications to Logix/SLC/PLC5/MicroLogix. The module also supports the DF1 Radio Modem Protocol.
1761-NET-AIC Replacement Solution
Aparian has released the DH485 router that can be used to replace the obsolete 1761-NET-AIC module from Rockwell Automation. The router converts DH485 to directly EtherNet/IP alleviating the need for DF1 communications. The module allows simultaneous connections to multiple controllers. It can be used to program controllers via DH485.
RCM Mark Obtained
Aparian, Inc. is please to announce that it has obtained the Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM) for Australia and New Zealand for our Routers, 4 Channel HART, Time Sync, and XPosition modules.
DF1 Router now supports DF1 Radio Modem protocol
DF1 Radio Modem protocol has been added to the functionality of the Aparian DF1 Router (A-DF1R) with release of firmware 1.018. The configurable store-and-foreward options allow the simple deployment of a complex radio network, where certain nodes are required to act as repeaters.
Time synchronization for PLC5, SLC, MicroLogix, or Modbus Devices
The Time Sync module now supports synchronizing legacy PLC platforms (PLC5, SLC) as well as MicroLogix controllers by either writing GPS time directly into the system file of the controller or to a integer file. The Time Sync module also supports writing GPS time to a Modbus register. See Time Sync Module.
