Industrial

Data Exchange Modules, Computing Products, Network Cards & Test Tools

Softing helps you get connected with communications modules for Rockwell Automation controller platforms such as ControlLogix, CompactLogix, SLC-500, and PLC-5. We also have experience with a wide range of network protocols including Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, Data Highway, Remote I/O, ControlNet, and Siemens Industrial Ethernet. Softing helps you stay connected with Ethernet cable testers to prove your application speed, troubleshoot cables and networks, and even certify cable installations.

Appliance Transaction Modules

Designed for Enterprise-to-Controller or Controller-to-Controller data exchange. Set-up of tag/array data transfer is done graphically via configuration software. Once completed, the modules alone handle all data exchange - no other software is required.

eATM tManager - Connect ControlLogix PLC to Databases

Connect ControlLogix to databases like Microsoft SQL or Oracle and to Cloud applications with MQTT protocol

tManager® Enterprise Appliance Transaction Modules (eATM®) enable bi-directional data exchange between enterprise databases like Microsoft SQL and CompactLogix PLCs.

Connect CompactLogix to databases like Microsoft SQL or Oracle

tManager® Enterprise Appliance Transaction Modules (eATM®) enable bi-directional data exchange between enterprise systems like Microsoft SQL databases and ControlLogix PLCs. tManager is the preferred PLC in-chassis hardware connectivity solution as compared to PC software-based connectivity solutions such as VB scripting and FactoryTalk Transaction Manager.

Phoenix Digital OCR Ethernet Networking Module

Connect Ethernet PLCs together through Phoenix Digital networking communications modules

The Phoenix Digital OCR is a DIN rail mount module that connects your Ethernet PLCs together and connects PLCs to Ethernet field devices.  This industrial networking module is a built-for-purpose OT solution for control engineers.  For example, the networking module comes with no configuration software so you can support your PLC and device networking without complicated setup and configuration.  The OCR has a redundant fiber backbone for maximum network reliability and uptime.  The OCR module supports Ethernet protocols such as PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, and Modbus TCP/IP all at the same time.  Boot up time is about 10 seconds, and if a fiber fails, there is 0 convergence time to failover to the redundant fiber.  Gone is the complicated setup required for redundant networking using IT based switches.

Phoenix Digital in-chassis Ethernet Networking Modules

Connect Ethernet PLCs together through Phoenix Digital networking communications modules

These Phoenix Digital in-chassis modules connect your ControlLogix, CompactLogix, SLC-500, and PLC-5 PLCs together and connect PLCs to Ethernet field devices.  These industrial networking modules are built-for-purpose OT solutions for control engineers.  For example, the networking modules come with no configuration software so you can support your PLC and device networking without complicated setup and configuration.  The redundant fiber backbone between modules provides maximum network reliability and uptime.  The in-chassis modules support Ethernet protocols such as PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, and Modbus TCP/IP all at the same time.  Boot up time is about 10 seconds, and if a fiber fails, there is 0 convergence time to failover to the redundant fiber.  Gone is the complicated setup required for redundant networking using IT based switches.

Network Cards

Cards with extended temperature range (>70 deg C) to connect computers and industrial terminals to networks such as ControlNet and EtherNet/IP.

High-temperature PCI network cards

The PCI ControlNet is an extended temperature version of the 1784-PCIC ControlNet Card. It supports redundant media and can be run continuously in a 90°C environment.

High-temperature network card for PCI Express (PCIe)

The high temp PCI Express card with redundant media support for ControlNet was specifically designed for use in Allen-Bradley 6181 Integrated Industrial Computers with PCI Express (PCIe) bus slots.

Network Test Tools

Cable certifiers allow installers and control engineers to quickly analyze and troubleshoot their Ethernet cabling installations. Softing's most advanced certifier, the WireXpert 4500 tests systems to the highest levels quickly and easily and includes options for various types of media and connectors.

WireXpert Cable Certifier

WireXpert 4500 is the ideal measurement tool for the certification of Industrial Ethernet network cabling up to 2500 MHz. With its RJ45 and M12 D-coded connection kits, it supports the most widely used industrial connector types.

NetXpert Cable Qualifier

NetXpert XG is a cable tester and network LAN manager in one handheld test tool.  NetXpert XG provides a complete solution for cable testing, performance analysis, and troubleshooting of Industrial Ethernet networks, enabling rapid, simple verification and documentation of copper, fiber, RJ45 and M12 connectors.
