In Stock: A-B RIO/DH Gateways

Last update on July 7, 2022.

We provide gateways to provide communication between devices on Allen-Bradley Remote I/O (RIO) or Data Highway Plus (DH+) networks and devices on other networks such as Ethernet/IP, ModbusTCP, DF1, Modbus serial and others, and both models are in stock:  our Smart and NeoPAC SoftPLC Gateways.

ProSoft Technology recently discontinued their AN-X2-AB-DHRIO product, which was the only other supported gateway on the market.  SoftPLC Gateways provide more functionality than the ProSoft model (see the "Compare" tab at http://softplc.com/products/comm/abgw_landpg/) and are value priced options for customers needing "blue-hose" communications for partial system upgrades.

SoftLC now supports DHCP address assignments

Last update on Sept. 5, 2015.

SoftPLC’s networking now can support DHCP as an alternative to BOOTP and static IP addresses.

To use a DHCP client on any SoftPLC ethernet interface, just have the line in NETWORK.LST say:

ETH DHCP

That’s it!  The DHCP server should establish the GATEWAY and the DNS settings, the values in NETWORK.LST will be ignored if DHCP is set for an interface.

This support is for SoftPLC versions 4.6 and later.  Contact technical support (support@softplc.com) for more information.
