Eaton offers SmartWire-DT connectivity for Ethernet/IP and Modbus-TCP

09 May 2012

Eaton is now offering a new gateway for SmartWire-DT in order to connect to Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP. The SmartWire-DT communication system for networking control circuit and switching devices can now also be connected to controllers via an Ethernet/IP or Modbus-TCP network, thanks to the new EU5C-SWD-EIP-MODTCP SmartWire-DT gateway, which comes with a 10/100Mbit switch.

The additional diagnostics interface simplifies commissioning and helps users with any troubleshooting. The free SWD-Assist planning and commissioning software enables users to configure the SmartWire-DT network easily.

The online function of the SWD-Assist, in particular, enables the first test of the switchboard installation to be carried out without having to install a PLC. All inputs and outputs of the SmartWire-DT slaves are simply exported and used in whichever PLC configurator is being used.


Version 1.40 onwards of SWD-Assist now also allows the configuration of the new EU5C-SWD-EIP-MODTCP gateway. The Ethernet/IP - Modbus-TCP gateway enables an Ethernet-based connection to the SmartWire-DT system for the first time, ensuring that important fieldbus systems for commonly used controllers are fully covered.

The SWD-Assist planning and commissioning software is available for download free of charge here.
