netTAP 50 connects to communication networks and acts as a Gateway for simple conversions between one Real-Time Ethernet protocol (1-port) and one fieldbus protocol or one serial automation protocol as well as between one fieldbus protocol and one serial automation protocol. netTAP 50 supports Slave-zu-Slave- and Slave-zu-Master-conversions. As a master, netTAP 50 provides only one single slave device with the full master function. This makes it easy to integrate a single field device into any higher-level network.
The design of the netTAP 50 convinces by its compact hardware and is reduced to the basic requirements of a protocol converter. The converter is directed to market segments for which the factor costs has priority. This makes the netTAP 50 an attractively priced and universally applicable gateway that offers a wide variety of conversion options.
