1784-PKTX Replacements:GW1000-DHP1 & GW1000-ABEIP Ethernet/IP

DataLink Technologies is pleased to announce some flexible, external options to the Legacy Gateway products replacing the 1770-KF2, 1784-KTX, 1784-PKTX, 1784-PCMK, and 1784-U2DHP

DataLink Technologies Gateways, Inc. is an engineering company providing a single converter, multi-protocol gateway for (AB) Allen Bradley PLC users;  providing a one-box protocol DH+/DH-485 converter between Ethernet/IP, AB Ethernet,  ModTCP and serial (DF1, ASCII, Modbus) protocols. Custom engineering to AB Data Highway Plus (DH+) and DH-485 are available.

The GW1000 platform is a lower priced ($1,250 list), multi-protocol gateway that performs like a “mini” DH+ Controllogix gateway that can be easily converted by the client for other applications including serial DF1, ASCII, Modbus, ModTCP & custom to AB’s DH+ and DH-485.

Thousands of GW1000s are now successfully operating around the world. You can trust our product stability & reliability.  All our products come with a 5 year warranty, 30 day money back guarantee / no restocking charge.

Our GW1000-DHP1 is a serial/USB Interface to DH+ and our GW1000-ABEIP is an Ethernet to DH+ option allowing for remote RSLINX/LOGIX programming.   With PCI architectures continually changing, the DataLink solutions provide external options that allow legacy DH+ devices to connect both serial/USB and remotely to Ethernet. 

GW1000-DHP1: $1,250USD List
USB/Serial Interface to DH+ 
The GW1000-DHP1 is a USB/serial, compact alternative to Allen-Bradley's 1770-KF2. Also provides the same functionality as the 1784-KTX, 1784-PKTX, 1784-PCMK, 1784-U2DHP or SST 5136-SD. The DataLink GW1000-DHP1 is a low cost, compact alternative to Allen-Bradley's 1770-KF2. Also provides the same functionality as the 1784-P(KTX), 1784-PCMK or SST 5136-SD.The DataLink converts A-B DF1, (Modbus & ASCII also available) serial protocol to A-B DH+ network protocol providing a serial interface to DH+ for computers, modems and OEM equipment. Applications include PLC programming and graphical user interfaces (GUIs and MMIs) such as RSLINX, RSLOGIX, Wonderware, Kepare, Intellution, Citect, etc. The serial DF1 to DH+ conversion protocol available in the GW1000-DHP1 is the same one available in the GW1000-DHP1 product. The GW1000''s size, portability, and the choice between a freestanding and DIN rail model make it especially convenient for use in the office, the plant floor, or when travelling.

GW1000-ABEIP Ethernet/IP:  $1,250USD List
Ethernet/IP and AB Ethernet Interface to DH+
The DataLink GW1000-ABEIP is a gateway between both Ethernet/IP and AB Ethernet to AB’s DH+ Network.

The GW1000 interfaces any newer AB Ethernet/IP & AB Ethernet PLCs (ie. SLC 5/05, Compactlogix, Micrologix or PLC-5E) or MMI/SCADA/Programming package to any device/node on AB’s DH+.
This gateway is a cost-effective alternative to the AB Controllogix Gateway (1756-ENBT and 1756-RIO).

Applications include:

• SCADA/MMI/Programming Software (RLSINX/LOGIX/VIEW,Wondware, Kepware, Citect, Intellution, et. all) packages using AB Ethernet Drivers can read/write data from/to multiple DH+ nodes.
• Any AB Ethernet & Ethernet/IP PLC (MicroLogix, SLC 5/05, CompactLogix, FlexLogix, PLC-5E, ControlLogix) as Master will be able to send either read or write MSG (message) instructions to any DH+ PLC (SLC 5/04, PLC-5).
• DH+ as Master allows applications such as Panelview on DH+ to message SLC 5/05 on Ethernet.

The 1784-PKTX and -PKTXD cards:
•communicate with nodes on Data Highway Plus networks, including PLC-5®, PLC-5/250, and SLC 5/04 processors, and SLC 5/01, SLC 5/02, and SLC5/03 processors (only via 1785-KA5)
•communicate with SLC processors on DH-485 networks
•communicate to DH+ and Remote I/O via SoftLogix-5
•communicate to ControlLogix through a 1756-DHRIO module
•act as a remote I/O scanner

The 1784-PKTX performs data transmission, management, and local network diagnostics. The interface to the host processor is through a board-resident dual-port memory.
Rockwell Automation RSLinx interface software manages data transmission and reception through dual-port memory.
The PCI BIOS on your computer automatically assigns the PKTx card.s IRQ and base memory address (one for each channel). If your card has two channels, both channels share.

The 1784-PKTx card is a PCI bus card, compliant with the PCI Bus Specification Revision 2.3. This card was developed with Plug and Play functionality, as defined in Revision 1.0A of the Plug and Play BIOS Specification. Because of this, PKTx cards do not require the use of switches or jumpers to configure their specific interrupt request levels (IRQ) and base memory address values. These configurations are automatically assigned to the PKTx card by the PCI BIOS when the computer is powered-up. The configurations are stored in the PCI configuration registers.

1784-PKTX Background information
Rockwell Automation 1784-PKTx family PCI cards connect PCs to PLC controllers on Data Highway Plus (DH+) or SLC processors on DH-485 networks for easy programming and data acquisition. I/O scanner functionality is also available in the cards so they can be used with soft-control or embedded-control engines. And, because these cards incorporate the Universal PCI Card Standard, they are compatible with almost any PC. If general programming, configuration, and monitoring capabilities via an industrial or desktop PC are required, these cards are a necessity.

Your 1784-PKTx network interface card (cat. nos. 1784-PKTX and 1784-PKTXD) is a PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) universal card that must be inserted into a PCI bus slot. A universal card can be placed into a PCI bus slot that is keyed for either 3.3 Volt or 5 Volt signalling. This card may also be placed in a 64-bit slot, although it will not use the extended 64-bit operation. Table 1.1 outlines features supported by the PKTx cards. Listen to our users. The GW1000 works exactly as they say. It is simple to configure and got my applications connected quickly and it was a very cost-effective solution.
