netTAP 151 from Hilscher transmits IO data bidirectionally between any two industrial Real-Time Ethernet networks. With more than 25 different combinations of the protocols PROFINET, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, POWERLINK, Sercos, Modbus TCP and CC-Link, the device series provides a solution for any conversion.

  • Bridging between any two Real-Time Ethernet networks
  • Flexible choice of operating modes Slave/Master or Slave/Slave
  • Effortless integration as standard IO device
  • Secure network segregation via internal data buffer
  • Fast conversion time less than 10 milliseconds

The integration as simple IO device into the primary network makes the converter compatible with any common PLC.

On the secondary side it works either as IO device too or controls a subordinate network as a bus master. The length of the IO data can be scaled to any application and the data in between can be arbitrarily mapped on byte level.

Secure network separation is provided by two Ethernet controllers, each connected to a Dual Ethernet port with integrated switch which enables, star, ring and inline network topologies without further peripherals.

Dual controllers handle the protocols independent from each other and exchange only the IO data across a data buffer. An overall data processing time lower than 10 milliseconds is achieved.

The devices can be ordered preloaded with firmware and license or unloaded. Unloaded devices minimize the storage costs. Subsequent loading of a firmware configures these devices for any conversion. All devices are commissioned and diagnosed network independent over USB using the included Windows Tool. The configuration can be stored on an optional SD card for fast backup and restore.
