The DSPSX000 is the single-device solution for protocol conversion. The DSP bridges the communication gap between disparate serial, Ethernet and fieldbus devices—unlocking untold information from PLCs, drives, motion controllers, etc., orphaned by incompatible communications standards. Drag and drop register mapping allows a Siemens PLC to talk to an Allen Bradley drive in just seconds. With a growing list of over 300 serial, Ethernet and fieldbus drivers, the DSP allows you to choose the best-in-class automation components, without worrying over whether or not they’ll communicate with one another.

Getting legacy machines onto a common communications backbone used to be largely impossible, sometimes requiring a complete replacement of the automation components. The DSPSX000 allows you to convert your old PLC’s and drive’s proprietary protocol into a modern and open standard. By unlocking information hidden in these legacy devices, you save money while avoiding a risky upgrade to equipment that is otherwise working perfectly.

The DSPSX000 messaging facilities can be used to send alarms or events using email or SMS text messages to PCs, as well as PDAs and mobile phones. Files can be attached to email so report or logging information arrive directly to the appropriate personnel, facilitating faster intervention or maintenance when problems occur.
