echochange is an Ethernet gateway for connecting different Ethernet networks and devices from different manufacturers. The protocol converter supports the Ethernet TCP/IP protocols of leading manufacturers such as Siemens, Rockwell Automation and Schneider Electric, thus creating the connection between devices and networks for which data exchange has previously not been easily possible. With echochange, a SIMATIC S5 with a SIMATIC S7 controller or a Siemens PLC with a Rockwell Automation PLC can be connected, for example.
The gateway can be configured locally or remotely. The supplied NetCon configuration software offers many individualization and diagnostic options at protocol level.
As basic functionality, ten connections to PLCs as well as all available protocol drivers can be used. An extension license supports up to 30 PLC connections.
