IDX Starnet HDLC & ESP Gateway

 

Your communication solution for legacy Starnet (HDLC & ESP) devices such as the GEM 80

 

Powered by IDX Suite, get your StarNET HDLC or StarNET ESP device interfacing with any of the below:

PROFIBUS DP Master | PROFIBUS DP Slave

MODBUS TCP Master | MODBUS TCP Slave

MODBUS RTU Master | MODBUS RTU Slave

 

* Custom interfaces can be built upon request

 

The IDX StarNet Gateway is a rugged, industrial-grade embedded device that is designed for in-the-field operation and contains no mechanical or moving parts

 

The device can impersonate multiple StarNET slave devices or the controller, allowing for flexible upgrade scenarios where whole controllers or multiple legacy StartNET devices are to be replaced using a single gateway.
