AS-i controller / gateway with high connectivity

DataLine SmartPLC: flexible automation system

  • Quick and easy set-up
  • Flexible and future-proof thanks to connective hardware and CODESYS V3
  • Various protocols on different interfaces
  • Designed for Industry 4.0 applications
  • Unbeatable price / performance ratio

Communicative PLC
The DataLine SmartPLC is freely programmable via CODESYS V3 and offers full access to all interfaces of the system. Two Ethernet ports act as EtherCAT fieldbus / slave interface and enable high-performance communication to other PLC systems. Different communication protocols can be used in parallel via two further Ethernet ports, e.g. EtherCAT master, EtherNet/IP scanner, Modbus TCP master and slave, TCP/IP, UDP/IP or OPC/UA server.

Designed for Industry 4.0​
The DataLine SmartPLC is best-equipped for Industry 4.0 applications. Towards the PLC, it acts like a classic AS-i gateway and towards IT, any process values can be made available via different communication protocols. An integrated real-time clock and an SD card slot complete the features.
