New FOUNDATION Fieldbus Linking Devices Strengthen Rockwell Automation Communication Portfolio

Two new linking devices from Rockwell Automation provide PlantPAx process automation system users with connectivity to FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices. The Allen-Bradley 1788-EN2FFR and 1788-CN2FFR linking devices provide a direct link from EtherNet/IP or ControlNet networks to the FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 device-level network, making the integration of FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices intuitive and seamless.

    An issue I have with these are they are only a single H1 segment. These are no solution to replacing their 1757 series linking devices when they discontinue them in the not too distant future!!
