Make serial devices network-capable


Serial device servers and gateways make network migration easy

Middletown, Pa. – Phoenix Contact introduces a new line of serial device servers and gateways that gives automation engineers an easy and cost-effective way to connect control systems and field devices.

Performing routine maintenance, upgrades, or expansion of control systems can lead to a communications gap between legacy devices and emerging technologies. Many companies have traditionally depended on serial system connectivity and are now trying to integrate controls that communicate via Ethernet. This new family of serial device servers and gateways support most common industrial protocols, with various combinations of HART®, HART IP, Profinet, Modbus TCP, Modbus® RTU, Raw/ASCII, and EtherNet/IP™.
