The gateway netTAP 151 transmits IO data bi directionally between any two industrial Real-Time Ethernet networks like PROFINET, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, POWERLINK, Sercos, etc.

Effortless integration as simple IO device into the primary network makes the converter compatible with any common PLC/DCS/SCADA, etc. On the secondary side it works either as IO device too or controls a subordinate network as a bus master. The length of the IO data can be scaled to any application and the data in between can be mapped on byte level arbitrarily.

Secure network separation is provided by two Ethernet controllers, each connected to a Dual Ethernet port with integrated switch. That allows realizing star, ring and inline network topologies without further peripherals. Both controllers handle the protocols independent from each other. NT151 minimises storage costs. Subsequent loading of a firmware configures these devices for any conversion. All devices are commissioned and diagnosed network independent over USB, so just download freely available firmware as per your protocol into NT151, firmwares are available for immediate download at in the product section Gateway category netTAP 151.

In short netTAP 151 is a universal gateway to convert any Real time Etherent protocol to any other Real time Ethernet protocol so now Hilscher provides only 1 hardware for all protocol conversions which secures investment and 100% flexibility reduces logistic and administrative effort. In addition to that Master or Slave is freely configurable with Unrestricted Master functionality and Memory card option for data backup.
