Automation Integrator uses Comtrol for Device Connectivity

DeviceMaster UP 2-port 2E

A leading integrator of factory automation and robotics solutions selected the Comtrol DeviceMaster UP 2-port 2E for a production line cell for forging spindles. In this application laser markers communicating via Ethernet TCP/IP were used to apply a serial number to the spindles. The commands were sent to the marker through a PLC running Profinet. Further down the process, the spindles are loaded into a dunnage box that is applied with a label that lists the part number, date/ time, and operator ID. This data is passed to an Ethernet TCP/IP label printer from a Profinet PLC through the DeviceMaster UP 2-port 2E.

DeviceMaster UP 2-port 2E

Comtrol’s DeviceMaster UP 2-port 2E was the perfect solution because it can connect multiple TCP/IP Ethernet interface devices to an Industrial Ethernet protocol. In addition to Profinet, these devices can also connect to Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP controllers.

The DeviceMaster UP provides the following communication modes:

  • EtherNet/IP™ to Serial or Ethernet TCP/IP
  • PROFINET IO to Serial or Ethernet TCP/IP
  • Modbus/TCP to Serial or Ethernet TCP/IP
  • Modbus/TCP to Modbus/RTU
  • Modbus/RTU Device (Auto Locate and Auto Route)
  • TCP/IP Socket Communication
