Interface Cards and Gateways

Our industrial communication interface cards connect computers to Fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet networks, while our gateways provide a vertical link between the shop floor and the corporate IT network.

By offering a range of protocol converters from either serial or Fieldbus to Ethernet, it has never been easier to enable factory floor devices to be connected to the corporate network. This allows management to make decisions based on real time information.
