The EKI-1200 series Modbus gateways are bi-directional gateways for integrating new and existing Modbus/RTU and Modbus/ASCII serial devices to newer TCP/IP networked-based devices. The EKI-1228 has two independent Ethernet ports and MAC addresses to provide redundancy and reliability. They provide a simple and cost-effective way to bring remote management and data accessibility to thousands of devices that cannot connect to a network. EKI-1228 provides a feature that can allow users to select master or slave operation mode for each serial port. They not only allow an Ethernet master to control serial slaves, but also allow serial masters to control Ethernet slaves.
