Engineers can simply assign a fixed IP address for the port connected to
PLCs and drives, while IT managers can either select their own IP
address or use DHCP to configure the enterprise port. This allows for
communication on separate networks, increasing platform functionality
and flexibility. Already supporting 10 simultaneous Ethernet protocols,
as well as 3 serial protocols, the Data Station Plus and Modular
Controller series provide a high level of protocol conversion and device
integration. Providing a second Ethernet port for communication, the
XCENET card increases bandwidth and allows communication on 2 distinct
Ethernet networks simultaneously without the addition of an industrial
router—reducing cost and configuration time.
