Designed for intelligent manufacturing, machine automation, and intelligent transportation systems (ITS), it includes products such as serial device servers, the IMG-2400T Modbus Gateway from Planet Technology Corporation, IMG-2100T with Modbus RTU/ASCII, and the IECS-1116-DI EtherCAT slave I/O modules from Planet Tech., IECS-1116-DO from Planet Tech. integrated with Modbus TCP and MQTT protocols.
RS232/RS422/RS485 Serial Device Servers
• Industrial Automation and Data Exchange for Industrial 4.0 Infrastructure
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.
RS232/RS422/RS485 Modbus Gateways
• Economical Solution for Industrial Modbus TCP/RTU/ASCII Network Integration
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..
Industrial EtherCAT Slave I/O Modules
• Powering the Digital Transformation with EtherCAT
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.
