PLANET Industrial Automation solution helps realize IIoT-based connectivity by providing a variety of products to flexibly and efficiently transform traditional industrial devices into TCP/IP transmission and management.
Made for smart manufacturing, machine automation and intelligent transportation system (ITS), it covers products such as Serial Device Servers, Modbus Gateway with Modbus RTU/ASCII, and EtherCAT Slave I/O Module integrated with Modbus TCP and MQTT Protocols.
PLANET ICS Serial Device Server Series is specially designed to convert RS232, RS422 or RS485 serial communication to IoT and TCP/IP networking. It makes the connected legacy serial devices become IP-based facilities and is able to connect to the industrial Ethernet network allowing serial and Ethernet communications to connect efficiently and inexpensively. The ICS Series is a time-saving and cost-effective solution with no need of replacing the existing serial equipment and software system.
To fulfill the demand of automation and data exchange for industrial 4.0 infrastructure, PLANET MG and IMG Modbus Gateway Series can act as a conversion bridge between the RS233/422/485 equipment with the Modbus RTU/ASCII Protocol and the administrator workstations that run the Modbus TCP/IP Protocol.
The advantage of having the MG and IMG Series is to assist users to build an industrial environment between the Modbus TCP/IP Protocol and the Modbus RTU/ASCII Protocol easily, thus offering an application solution to the industrial control equipment without Ethernet ports.
PLANET IECS-1116-DI and IECS-1116-DO are industrial EtherCAT slave I/O modules equipped with the EtherCAT protocol for today's distributed industrial applications. The IECS Series provides high-density digital input/output channels and is protected with 3750V DC isolation. Its compact size and DIN-rail mounting make installation in a cabinet easy. Pluggable terminal blocks and LED indicator help users to maintain and set up their system.
