Ethernet/IP to SLC 5/02 on DH-485

I want to discard my 1747_pic converter for good and communicate to my SLC 5/02 which communicates using the PIC Driver etc.

I believe this is the correct product to use to communicate using ethernet/ip driver in laptop to your device then out your device into  rj45 port of plc.

Thank you for your inquiry.  The SLC 5/02 processor communicates using DH485 protocol and DH485 signal levels.  Since DH485 is becoming less popular over the years, we have removed the circuitry required to support DH485 signal levels from our standard product.  The GW1000 series will support Ethernet to DH+, serial to DH+, or ethernet to DH485 over the RS232 port, depending on firmware version loaded.  The DH485 communication protocol is supported, but only over the RS232 port voltage levels.  For those customers wishing to connect the GW1000 to a network of DH485 equipment, a 1761-NET-AIC module will be required.  The product to order is GW1000-ABEIP-DH485.

Connect a serial D9 to D9 null-modem cable between the RS232 port on the GW1000 to the RS232 port on the 1761-NET-AIC.  Connect the screw terminals of the 1761-NET-AIC to the DH485 equipment network.
