Fieldbus interface modules

Our RKC process and temperature controllers (which are fitted with MODBUS-RTU RS-485 interface) can communicate with various other systems, like:

  • Siemens S7 (ProfiNET, ProfiBUS)
  • Beckhoff (EtherCAT)
  • Allen Bradley (EtherNet/IP, DeviceNET)
  • Schneider/Telemecanique (ModBUS TCP, ModBUS RTU)
  • Mitsubishi Melsec (CC-Link , MAPMAN)
  • Omron SYSMAC (MAPMAN)
  • Sharp (MAPMAN)
  • Yaskawa (MECHATROLINK)

By using so-called communication convertors. These convertors convert the desired communication fieldbus interface and protocol into MODBUS-RTU RS-485.
