Aparian provides a range intelligent routing products for various protocols including EtherNet/IP, DF1, DNP3, and Modbus.
The DF1 Router which provides an easy to use solution to integrate legacy DF1 products, including DCS gateways, to Rockwell Automation's Logix family via EtherNet/IP.
The DNP3 Router provides intelligent data routing between EtherNet/IP and DNP3 (serial, Ethernet UDP, or Ethernet TCP). The DNP3 Router allows the user to integrate DNP3 devices over a secure link into a Rockwell Logix platform (e.g. ControlLogix or CompactLogix) with minimal effort. The DNP3 Router also supports DNP3 Secure Authentication.
The Modbus Router provides intelligent data routing between EtherNet/IP and Modbus (serial Modbus-RTU or Ethernet Modbus-TCP). The Modbus Router allows the user to integrate Modbus devices into a Rockwell Logix platform (e.g. ControlLogix or CompactLogix.) No copying or mapping of data in the Logix controller is required as the Modbus Router writes directly into Logix tags.
Time Sync & XPosition
The Time Sync module is a cost effective solution for providing high accuracy time synchronization across traditional Ethernet networks using 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) as well as Network Time Protocol (NTP). The XPosition module provides a method for connecting high precision GPS and inertial navigation devices to Rockwell Automation’s Logix (ControlLogix and CompactLogix) family of controllers.
The Process Cache module can read and store data from Logix Controllers, DF1 Serial Interfaces, or Modbus devices which can later be uploaded to an historian or SQL database. The module has the capacity to store over 16 million records in its solid-state non-volatile memory.
The DHCP Manager provides location co-ordinated IP Address assignment to DLR capable (embedded switch) devices connected in a linear topology. In applications where different sub-systems can be connected in any order, the module ensures that their IP addresses are assigned in the order in which they are located. Examples of this application can be found in the packaging industry.
