Gateway & Linking Devices

We offer a range of Gateway and Linking Devices to seamlessly connect your information- or control-level networks with your device-level network to help reduce control device costs by leveraging existing network structures to access data on other networks. Additional linking devices are available through our Encompass™ Partners, our third-party product-referencing program, to quickly locate the products that best solve your application challenges.

Bulletin 1788 4-Way Redundant Intelligent Fieldbus Junction Box

4-Way Fieldbus Junction Box

Our Bulletin 1788 4-way Redundant Intelligent Fieldbus Junction Box provides a simple, redundant, and fault-tolerant method for connecting field devices to a Profibus-PA or FOUNDATION Fieldbus (H1) network. The unit provides segment protection to four field device drop-line ports by continuously monitoring drop currents and disconnecting a faulty drop to protect the rest of the segment when a fault is detected. Trunk monitoring in redundant configurations enables the rerouting of trunk messages around cable faults.


Bulletin 1788 6-Way Intelligent Fieldbus Junction Box

6-Way Fieldbus Junction Box

Our Bulletin 1788 6-way Intelligent Fieldbus Junction Box provides a fault-tolerant method for connecting field devices to a Profibus-PA or FOUNDATION Fieldbus (H1) network. The unit comprises a bus-input port, bus-output port, and six field device drop-line ports. Each drop-line port’s bus current is continuously monitored. If a fault is detected, the drop is isolated until the fault is corrected. Even with one of the segments shorted, all remaining field devices on the bus are able to communicate.


Bulletin 1788 Redundant ControlNet to FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 Linking Device

ControlNet to FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1

Our Bulletin 1788 Redundant ContolNet™ to FOUNDATION Fieldbus (H1) Linking Device provides a fast and integrated solution for adding FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices to any Logix platform.


Bulletin 1788 Redundant ControlNet to Profibus-PA Linking Device

ControlNet to Profibus-PA

Our Bulletin 1788 Redundant ControlNet™ to Profibus-PA Linking Device provides a fast and integrated solution for adding Profibus-PA field devices to any Logix platform. This linking device provides a direct link between Profibus-PA and ControlNet without requiring an intermediate Profibus-DP layer.


Bulletin 1788 EtherNet/IP to DeviceNet Linking Devices

EtherNet/IP to DeviceNet Linking Devices

Our Bulletin 1788 EtherNet/IP™ to DeviceNet Linking Devices provide a fast and integrated solution for adding DeviceNet™ to a new, or existing system. Built-in remote access capabilities enable the ability to control, configure, and troubleshoot devices on the DeviceNet network through automated device management.


Bulletin 1788 Redundant EtherNet/IP to FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 Linking Device

EtherNet/IP to FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1

Our Bulletin 1788 Redundant EtherNet/IP™ to FOUNDATION Fieldbus (H1) Linking Device provides a fast and integrated solution for adding FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices to any Logix platform.
