I need get some data from a Omron PLC, model SYSMAC C200HX, this is an old plc that only have a serial port RS-232C. The fact is I need to convert and pass the serial data to ethernet/ip (from the plc to the pc). For this I found the advantech device ADAM-4571 that can get the data from serial (RS-232 and RS-485 and RS-422) and pass into ethernet/ip. The pc will have a OPC Server that will map the ip. In theory I think this can work, but could happen some complications? or the data will not be corrupted? Someone can share any experience in a similar case?.
Thanks an regards.
Most of the problems you can find are related to the parameters of serial/ethernet sections. You need to double check the serial parameters in the PLC and the gateway (Advantech module).
I implemented this kind of solution in other architectures using a Lantronix device:http://www.lantronix.com/products/xpres ... ss-dr-iap/
