The GemLan Router provides intelligent data routing between either EtherNet/IP or AB Ethernet PCCC (e.g. PLC5 Ethernet communications) and the GEMLAN-D’s DecNet (Ethernet) network.
- Intelligent routing to GEM80 over DECNet
- Supports PLC5 (PCCC) and Logix (EtherNet/IP) integration
- Enables PanelView to directly connect to GEM80 controller
- Logix integration supports Direct-To-Tag technology
This module enables the integration of a GEM80 controller into a Rockwell Logix platform (e.g. ControlLogix or CompactLogix) or Rockwell HMI (e.g. FTView / PanelView) with minimal effort.
The The module can be configured to either exchange data between a Logix controller and a GEM80 controller at a fixed interval, or as an AB Ethernet PCCC slave and DECNet master allowing a Rockwell SCADA to directly communicate with a GEM80 controller.
The module also provides a range of statistics to help fault find any problem.
A built-in webserver provides detailed diagnostics of system configuration and operation, including the display of GemLan operation and communication statistics, without the need for any additional software.
