But how can they get to that data?

ProSoft Technology’s new PLX32-EIP-MBTCP-UA gateway brings together EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP and OPC UA to ensure that end users’ data has a streamlined path to their ERP and MES, ensuring the information is accessible and actionable. The protocols can be used independently and simultaneously, and the OPC UA Server allows 10 OPC UA sessions at a time. An EDS Add-On Profile allows for simplified integration for Rockwell Automation® EtherNet/IP-based PACs.
