This article describes how the Anybus Communicator can be connected from a Allen-Bradley SLC controller via DeviceNet to Modbus based field device.
I need to connect Allen-Bradley SLC controller via DeviceNet to Modbus based field device. Are there some Anybus products that can do this?
If we assume that the SLC500 is a DeviceNet Scanner and your Modbus devices are Slaves, then Anybus Communicator is the perfect match. One of the greatest benefits with this product is that you can configure the Modbus Commands you want to use to your serial device and just map selected data up to a local memory map, this is then transferred over DeviceNet to your SLC500. The configuration work is very simple and does not require any additional programming of the SLC500.
