Sending ASCII data to a PLC is a nightmare: complicated setup menus; ASCII strings sent as I/O data; tricky message instructions; long, intricate PLC hand shaking logic; hours wasted knee deep in 100 page manuals; and unsupportive technical support. Why is it always like that? ItÂ?s not anymore. The Messenger ASCII to PLC Gateway is the magic bullet for quickly and easily moving ASCII data into Rockwell Automation Programmable Controllers with no Ladder Logic.

"I challenged my customer to get it working by the time I got back from his break room with a coke and he indeed had it working when I got back. Then he said, 'It's worth twice the price!'" says Eric P. at Kendall Electric Rockwell, the Automation Distributor in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Jim, Controls Engineer at a Paper Manufacturer in Upper Michigan, said, "We had our barcode scanner up and running within a day…the great web interface makes it easy."

End the agony of sending ASCII data to your Rockwell PLC with the RTA "No

More Agony Plan":

1) Create a tag array or set of numeric registers in your PLC

2) Start the Web Server and tell it the PLCs IP address, the tag (or register) name and how to recognize your ASCII data (terminating character, num bytes or time)

3) Watch as the ASCII data just shows up in your PLC – Even if the PLC is in Program Mode

Get ASCII to PLC modules for ControlLogix and CompactLogix (Catalog #435NBA), PLC5E Processors (Catalog #435NBP) and SLC5/05 and MicroLogix (Catalog #435NBS).
