EtherNet/IP to ASCII


ProSoft Technology’s EtherNet/IP™ to ASCII communication gateway allows high-speed bi-directional data transfers between EtherNet/IP™-enabled PACs and ASCII devices such as weigh scales and barcode readers. The EtherNet/IP™ protocol driver supports the explicit messaging implementation. The gateway is user-configurable as both a client and a server.

EtherNet/IP™ PACs include Rockwell Automation® ControlLogix® and CompactLogix™, as well as several Schneider Electric® controllers. Applications for this module are found in most industries, especially manufacturing, oil & gas, electrical power and food processing.

The gateway has several features that allow for simplified integration, reduced commissioning time and optimized performance.

Особенности и преимущества

  • Data prioritization: Multiple I/O connections allow you to set RPIs for status and/or control data, optimizing Ethernet bandwidth.
  • Includes an embedded EDS Add-On Profile, allowing for simplified integration and reduced commissioning time. 
  • Includes a SD card slot (SD card optional) for storing configuration files. This can be used for disaster recovery. 
  • ProSoft Discovery Service: This utility allows your PC to see the gateway and change its default IP address without being on the same subnet. 
  • Secure module configuration via module switch (v1.04 and greater). 
  • Up to 4000 16-bit registers can be used to exchange large amounts of data.

ASCII Protocol Specification

The ASCII protocol driver permits the module to interface to many ASCII devices. Each ASCII port on the module is configurable to send and/or receive ASCII strings, each supporting its own individual serial network.

Protocol Specifications

The ASCII driver provides a powerful connection between the internal application database in the ProLinx unit and devices supporting serial ASCII communications (bar code scanners, line printers, legacy terminal based computer systems, etc).

The serial port on the gateway is user-configurable to support ASCII communications (Baud rate, Data Bits, Stop Bits, etc). The ASCII port can act as a Master (Send ASCII strings) or as a Slave (Receive ASCII strings), or both.

ASCII Specifications


Available in up to four port configurations to receive and/or transmit data.

Transmit and Receive buffer size

255 bytes each

Transmit character with pacing

0 to 65535 millisecond delay between each transmitted character.
