IDX StarNET Gateway


Your communication solution for legacy StarNET devices such as the GEM 80



Powered by IDX Suite 8, get your HDLC or ESP StarNET 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 is able to impoersonate 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.


StarNet HDLC interfaces 2/4 non-isolated RS-422 HDLC interfaces.(48/180Kbps, NRZI, FM0, FM1 encoding)
StarNet ESP interfaces 1 x non-isolated RS-232/422/484 ESP interface(110-9600bps), 3 x non-isolated RS-232 ESP interfaces (110-9600bps)
StarNet operating modes HDLC Primary/Secondary (multi-dropable exchange mode/broadcast w/response mode), ESP Controller or Tributary (J/K table exchange mode)
