ICP Electronics Australia announces ICP DAS’s new ECAT-2610 EtherCAT to Modbus RTU Gateway

ICP Australia has introduced ICP DAS’s new ECAT-2610 EtherCAT to Modbus RTU Gateway.

The gateway enables users to integrate their serial RS-232/422/485 based industrial devices and equipment to an EtherCAT control system without the need for any changes to the device.

The ECAT-2610 communicator is a protocol converter gateway that connects non-networked industrial devices and equipment to EtherCAT. The gateway performs an intelligent protocol conversion and presents the serial data to the Master PLC/Controller as easily processed I/O data.

Key features:

  • MCU handles efficient network traffic
  • Integrate RS-232/422/485 serial device to EtherCAT
  • 2 x RJ-45 bus interface
  • Supports maximum 256-word input and 256-word output data
  • Supports maximum baud rate 115200 bps
  • Allows system integrators to retrofit older automation devices into modern EtherCAT communication structures
  • Requires no hardware or software changes to be made to the connected device
  • Compatible with all PLCs with EtherCAT support
  • Performs complete serial protocol conversion, no PLC function blocks required
  • RoHS compliant
