PLC5s to Ethernet/IP

Q: Why would I go with your GW1000-ABEIP instead of upgrading all my AB Equipment (ie. PLC5s) to Ethernet/IP?
A: Cost. You only need one GW1000-ABEIP per DH+ at a cost of $1,395 list. You don’t have to upgrade each PLC5 processor on DH+ to a PLC5E . This can save significant money if you have a big DH+ Network. This functionality allows RSLinx/RSLogix on Ethernet/IP have access to all the nodes on your DH+.

More About the GW1000-ABEIP:

DataLink now offers the GW1000-ABEIP that significantly reduces your AB Ethernet upgrading costs as you don’t need to replace each DH+ PLC processor/device.
Simply make the GW1000-ABEIP a node on DH+ and then interface to your AB Ethernet. AB PLC users can interface bi-directionally between Allen-Bradley Data Highway Plus (DH+) / DH-485 and AB Ethernet (CIP & 2222 protocols).
