  • Loadable Firmware for flexible use of other conversions
  • With Ethernet diagnostic and configuration port

Product Description

netTAP 50 is a protocol converter for simple conversions. netTAP 50 converts 1-port Real-Time Ethernet, fieldbus and serial automation protocols. Slave to slave or slave to master conversions are supported. As a master, netTAP 50 provides full master functionality to one slave device only. This makes it easy to integrate a single field device into any higher-level network.

The design impresses with a cost-optimized, compact hardware implementation being reduced to the elementary requirements of a protocol converter. The converter addresses market segments which set the focus on cost savings. The cost-reduced design combined with its countless conversion possibilities makes netTAP 50 an attractive gateway in terms of price and universality.
