Appliance Transaction Manager

Appliance Transaction Modules - Connectivity Modules for ControlLogix and CompactLogix

Designed for Enterprise-to-PLC or PLC-to-PLC data exchange. Set-up of tag/array data transfer is done graphically via configuration software. Once completed, the modules alone handle all data exchange between the plant floor PLC and business system SQL database - PC in the middle for moving data has been eliminated by the tManager in-chassis PLC module.

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 »

Certify and Troubleshoot Copper and Fiber network communication cabling

WireXpert 4500 is the only network cable certification platform with the Dual Control System -- graphical displays at both ends of the cable. WireXpert tests and certifies Industrial Ethernet network cabling performance up to 2500 MHz to globally accepted standards. With its RJ45 and M12 D-coded connection kits, it supports the most widely used industrial connector types.

FiberXpert »

 OTDR to troubleshoot and certify fiber optic cables and measure distance to fault

Troubleshoot and certify fiber optic cable installation and then use the eXport reporting software for both the WireXpert and the FiberXpert.  FiberXpert provides graphical display of events in your fiber such as bends, connectors, and splices, and displays distance to these events and faults.

NetXpert XG »
Test cables, Manage active LANs

NetXpert XG tests Industrial Ethernet cable performance enabling rapid, simple verification and documentation of the capability of cabling links with RJ45 and M12 connectors.  NetXpert XG helps you troubleshoot and manage your copper and fiber active LAN.
