ProSoft Technology specializes in the development of industrial communication solutions for automation and control applications. Our primary focus is to provide a connectivity interface that links dissimilar automation networks as seamlessly as if they were all from the same supplier. Essentially, ProSoft Technology products act as an interpreter so data can flow easily between machines that speak different languages.
ProSoft Technology products include plug-in interfaces for large automation suppliers’ controllers such as Rockwell Automation® and Schneider Electric®, as well as stand-alone gateways and industrial wireless solutions. ProSoft products can be found in nearly every industry that employs automation.
Starting with one computer chip in 1988, ProSoft Technology now has over 400 products supporting more than 60 different industrial computer languages.
ProSoft Technology has a wide array of products to choose from including industrial cellular, 802.11 abgn hotspots, frequency hopping radios for long-distance applications and wireless I/O.
ProSoft Technology has a family of Wi-Fi radios to meet various applications. Our 802.11abgn radios are capable of RF data transmission rates of up to 300 Mbps, which is great for I/O Control and video streaming applications.
The RLX2 family has many valuable features including support of an EtherNet/IP™ object and Modbus® Agent enabling EtherNet/IP and Modbus® TCP controllers to read diagnostic information from the radios. This can help reduce down time when troubleshooting network issues.
Our Frequency Hopping radios provide up to 30 miles of point to point connectivity at 1.1 Mbps, and are the solution for outdoor SCADA and other long distance applications.
If you have equipment in locations all over the world and need to monitor, access, and troubleshoot your Automation equipment, ProSoft Technology’s Industrial Cellular Gateways can help. Your remote access is secured using VPN tunnels over Internet connections.
Our gateways can communicate with your EtherNet/IP™ PLCs, allowing you to monitor the signal strength, data usage, operating temperature, and more. EtherNet/IP™-based controllers can also send and receive text messages, keeping you up-to-date on the status of your application.
We have gateways that provide communication between several of the leading industrial protocols including: EtherNet/IP, Modbus Serial, Modbus TCP/IP, PROFIBUS DP, A-B Remote I/O, HART, DH+, IEC 61850 and many more.
ProSoft also offers a complete suite of migration gateways that allow Rockwell Automation users to upgrade their legacy PLCs, PanelViews™, Drives and Flex I/O systems to newer equipment. These gateways enable a phased migration of the control system minimizing scheduled downtime and risk.
Our full range of Building Automation gateways allow communication with Metasys, LonWorks, BACnet MS/TP and BACnet IP.
