ProSoft's IMC-BHx-AC Industrial Media Converters allow users to simultaneously run EtherNet/IP and A-B Remote I/O data on existing Belden 9463 Blue Hose media. Once Industrial Media Converters have been added to the system, users can deploy a phased upgrade of their legacy control system. A Logix system can be deployed on top of the existing Remote I/O infrastructure allowing users to upgrade their legacy I/O, drives, HMIs and other end devices. Upgrading your control system can be done during scheduled downtime, saving time and money.
