1-port Modbus® to Ethernet
Data Gateway
 Supports 10/100 Mbps communication speeds
 Allows up to 8 clients to access field data simultaneously
 Supports popular HMI software with Modbus/TCP driver or OPC server
 Up to 3 Independent serial ports capacity if configured to RS-485 serial mode
 Provides auto-searching device ID Windows utility
 Surge protection for RS-485 and power line
 Automatic RS-485 data flow control
 Easy mounting on DIN-rail and wall, and can also be stacked
 Supports Modbus/ASCII, Modbus/RTU Protocol to control devices
ADAM-4572 serves as an interface between Modbus® serial devices and computer hosts running Modbus/TCP on an Ethernet network. Fully compliant with Modbus/TCP, it is ideal
for those who looking for an easy way to connect their existing devices or controllers running Modbus serial protocols (Modbus/ASCII or Modbus/RTU) to Ethernet networks. It
works like a bridge between Modbus serial devices and controllers over TCP/IP Ethernet networks. Benefits are also abundant for customers who want to expand their Ethernet-based
Modbus (Modbus/TCP) applications.
Networks have become increasingly vital for industrial automation applications, but many control devices today do not have a network port and can only communicate with a dedicated
local PC or control panel. Advantech’s revolutionary network-enabling technology is now allowing control devices with serial ports to connect to the Ethernet and share networks
quickly and cost-effectively. The ADAM-4572 Modbus to Ethernet Data Gateway allows users to integrate new and existing Modbus/RTU and Modbus/ASCII serial devices to newer
TCP/IP network-based devices. Manufacturers, system integrators, and end users can now use the ADAM-4572 to create networked applications to remotely manage and access data
from control devices no matter where they are.
ADAM-4572 provides features such as: 10/100 Mbps data rate for Ethernet/Fast Ethernet connection, serial port speed up to 115.2 kbps, auto-searching device, Modbus RTU,
Modbus/ASCII, Modbus/TCP protocol, diagnostic LEDs, RJ-45 connectors and surge protection on network. This represents a true communication Data Gateway between Ethernet
and Modbus, and an easy choice when your factory needs improved network integration and resource sharing.
