Gateways

Choose the type of Gateway hardware needed:

Serial to Ethernet

For most applications interfacing a serial device to an Ethernet network the FS-B2010 (single serial port) or FS-B2510 (dual serial port) is the answer. With a serial and Ethernet ports and the extensive FieldServer library of protocol drivers the FS-B2010 and FS-B2510 can interface various serial devices to Ethernet networks.

Multiport Serial to Ethernet

For applications involving multiple serial devices the FS-B3510 has 4 serial ports in addition to 2 Ethernet ports and a LonWorks port. The FS-B4010 has 8 RS-232 and 2 RS-485 ports in addition to the 2 Ethernet ports. Thus the user can connect multiple devices using multiple protocols to an Ethernet based network. Imagine being able to bring a fire alarm panel, AC controls, boiler controls and security into the central building automation system. Plus for those priority applications calling for redundancy, hot standby option is available

ControlLogix

FieldServer Technologies has the SlotServer Communications Interface Module to enable Allen Bradley ControlLogix 1756 platforms to interface to a wide range of devices using the serial and Ethernet drivers available in the extensive FieldServer driver library.

DH+

When the application calls for interfacing serial or Ethernet devices to your Data Highway Plus network the answer is the FS-B4013 with multiple RS-232 and RS-485 ports plus dual Ethernet and a DH+ port.

Modbus Plus

When the application calls for interfacing serial or Ethernet devices to your Modbus Plus network the answer is the FS-B4019 with multiple RS-232 and RS-485 ports plus dual Ethernet and a Modbus Plus port.

ControlNet

When the application calls for interfacing serial or Ethernet devices to your ControlNet network the answer is the FS-B3514 or FS-B4014 with multiple RS-232 and RS-485 ports plus dual Ethernet and a ControlNet port.

DeviceNet

When the application calls for interfacing serial or Ethernet devices to your DeviceNet network the answer is the FS-B3515 for DeviceNet Slave or FS-B3521 for DeviceNet Master with multiple RS-232 and RS-485 ports plus dual Ethernet and a ControlNet port.

Profibus

When the application calls for interfacing serial or Ethernet devices to your Profibus DP network, the answer is the FS-B3512 (Profibus DP Slave) or FS-3521 (Profibus DP Master) with multiple RS-232 and RS-485 ports plus dual Ethernet and a Profibus DP port.

BACnet Arcnet

When the application calls for interfacing serial or Ethernet devices to your BACnet Arcnet network the answer is the FS-B4018 with multiple RS-232 and RS-485 ports plus dual Ethernet and an Arcnet port.
