ProSoft releases two-port EtherNet/IP to PROFINET gateway

February 17, 2016 – ProSoft Technology added a two-port EtherNet/IP to PROFINET gateway to its PLX30 gateway family.

The gateway features two Ethernet ports, allowing devices that speak two different protocols to reside on separate subnets. This enables users to avoid the process of having to change their devices’ IP addresses, which may involve several software programs. Keeping the protocols on two subnets also assists IT personnel by helping them more easily identify the devices in their operations.

All of ProSoft’s PLX30 gateways use Ethernet for configuration and diagnostics, and have an SD card slot for configuration backup, optimizing the user’s resources. The EIP gateways also support multiple I/O connections, enabling users to prioritize data transmission rates and optimize Ethernet bandwidth usage.
