Quick Link QLM500 (EtherNET)
The QLM500 EtherNet/IP Gateway is an active connection module which can be used in Standalone or ID-NET™ Master Multidata, or Master Synchronized layouts. It provides a fast
and efficient way to cable both an EtherNet/IP network and an ID-NET™ network using standard cables.
It provides separate M12 connectors for Power Supply, Ethernet Communication, ID-NET™ Network, External Trigger, Digital I/O and Aux RS232 Communication for configuration of the
The QLM500 Gateway provides an easy way to connect many Datalogic reading devices to any PLC with EtherNet/IP support. It allows EtherNet/IP real-time communication with bus or ring topologies, and due to its two Ethernet ports, it eliminates the need for expensive external switches.
Host communication is provided through the integrated EtherNet/IP circuitry which connects
internally to the reader's Main serial interface (RS232).
ID-NET™ network and power supply signals are provided to the next connected device (IDNET™ Slave), by means of a dedicated M12 connector. However there is not a second ID-NET™ network connector for bus propagation and therefore the QLM500 cannot be used as an ID-NET™ Slave.
