New STRIDE® Modbus Gateways Feature DIP Switch Selectable Termination Resistor

Press Release Summary:

New STRIDE® Modbus Gateways offer bridge between Modbus RTU/ASCII (Serial) products and Modbus TCP (Ethernet) products. The units come with metal housing with a temperature range of -40 to +75°C. The STRIDE® Gateways convert bidirectionally between RTU or ASCII protocols and TCP and are designed with 1 or 2 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports and 1, 2, or 4 industrial serial ports. These Ethernet port supports up to 16 TCP devices whereas the serial ports offers serial isolation voltage of 2kV.

New Bidirectional Serial / Ethernet Modbus Gateways added by AutomationDirect

AutomationDirect's new line of STRIDE® Modbus Gateways offers even more connectivity choices for Modbus applications. Communication networks vary greatly from site to site and often change as technology advances. Converters and gateways provide connections between different protocols and standards that exist in the industrial automation field. STRIDE Modbus Gateways provide the bridge between Modbus RTU/ASCII (Serial) products and Modbus TCP (Ethernet) products.

STRIDE gateways convert bidirectionally between Modbus RTU or Modbus ASCII protocols and Modbus TCP. These compact gateways feature 1 or 2 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports and 1, 2, or 4 industrial serial ports. The Ethernet ports each support up to 16 TCP devices, client or server. Serial ports each support up to 128 slave devices or 1 master device and provide a high serial isolation voltage of 2kV. There is a DIP switch selectable termination resistor for the RS-485 mode.

STRIDE gateways feature metal housings, have a wide temperature range of -40 to +75 deg C and a Class 1 Div 2 Hazloc rating (UL61010). The three models of the STRIDE Modbus Gateway are priced from $185.00 and have a 5-year warranty.
