BL family of IP67 programmable gateways utilize local network logic to perform complex tasks. Using these gateways, along with power supplies and I/O, make machines without a control cabinet. The gateways may be used to control a variety of I/O including digital, analog, serial and RFID. They can be used in standalone situations to reduce PLC load and network traffic in larger installations with Modbus, TCP/IP, EtherNet/IP and Profibus networks. CoDeSys software is used to program the gateways.
