Original Press Release:
FieldServer Technologies DH+ to Ethernet Gateway
February 15, 2002 - FieldServer Technologies, a Sierra Monitor Company, announces the new FS-B4010-01 DH+ to Ethernet Gateway.
The FS-4010-01 FieldServer Gateway is a protocol translator to convert Allen Bradley DH+ to an Ethernet protocol, making it easy to link DH+ devices to Ethernet. The Bridge driver library includes a wide range of various Ethernet protocols. With the FieldServer Bridge a device using DH+ can be accessible plantwide. The Gateway is a true protocol translator and not simply a tunneling device, thus only one Gateway is needed to link a DH+ device or network to Ethernet. This communication is fast and complete, any information available through the communications port can be translated into the alternative protocol. The Bridge can act as either a client or server, or in some situations can act as both.
In addition to DH+ an extensive protocol driver is available from FieldServer Technologies to meet other interoperability challenges. No other manufacturer has as broad a library. Drivers for fire alarm panels, building control systems, process control devices, and other systems are available for the FieldServers.
