Allen Bradley DF1 Integration: Gateways, Services, Resources
Intro to DF1
The Allen-Bradley DF1 Driver is used to communicated with most Allen Bradley RS232 interface modules manufactured by Rockwell Automation. It is an asynchronous byte-oriented protocol that provides a reliable way to connect Allen-Bradley DF1 devices to client applications; including HMI, SCADA, Historian, MES, ERP, and countless custom applications.
The DF1 driver supports Allen-Bradley Micrologix, SLC500, and PLC5 series PLCs and consists of link layer and application layer formats and it works over half duplex and full duplex modes of communication.
The DF1 QuickServer (QS) is a high-performance, fully configurable, and cost-effective protocol gateway for integrating any Rockwell Automation Allen-Bradley DF1 System.
The Gateway comes enhanced (500 points) and connects to RS232 ports. Chipkin knows this protocol to source code level. We offer expert support (Level 1,2) and configuration from day 1.
The FS-B3510 is one of the FS-X30 Series FieldServers designed to meet the needs of any system integrator.
The FS-B30 Series brings together the powerful FieldServer driver library with state-of-the-art gateway design. It supports 1,000 points which can be updrageded to 10,000 points allowing it to easily handle just about anything with no slowdown in performance.
