netBRICK - the gateway solution for applications in harsh industrial environments - allows shifting classic cabinet installations directly into the field. Whether netBRICK is used outdoor, in humid zones or areas with an increased temperature requirement, fully grouted, equipped with M12-connectors, and compliant with IP67, the rugged-line gateway resists most extreme environmental conditions.

netBRICK is firmware-compatible with the IP20-compliant gateway netTAP 100 and converts the most established Real-Time Ethernet/Ethernet, fieldbus and serial protocols used in the automation industry.

The robust and compact housing for simple screw mounting and the high flexibility of loadable firmware modules make netBRICK a unique and most powerful gateway on the market applicable for any field installation.

netBRICK is configured and diagnosed by the FDT/DTM-based planning, configuration and documentation tool SYCON.net. The USB port embedded in an M16 socket with blind plug serves as service interface. LED indicators allow a rapid visual on-site diagnosis.

The M12 connectors of each netBRICK variant are implemented in accordance with the respective network standards. One connector pair shares one network. It is either physically wired together or separated when operating as a switch enabling the realization of inline installations without T-connectors.

An additional male M12 connector provides the 24 V supply voltage.
