- I have been looking for a way to upgrade the old ISA-board comm interface on our Pentium-Pro pc running XP....
this could be what we need... either the ANC-120 or the ANC-100Hey @xshawk,
They are pretty easy to setup and cost less than a dedicated ControlLogix Gateway.
If you call the guys over at Automation Networks for a quote, please let them know you saw the product on my site/show!
Oh, and you the first name entered in the drawing! good luck!
ShawnThanks for posting this nice unboxing and setup clip. I enjoy catching up with the new products showed off without any issues.
I've had nightmares about calls connecting to 5/04s after one breakdown service call where the serial port couldn't be unplugged for my laptop.. My saved eBay search for the 1784-U2DHP hasn't found a result under the $1600 mark with shipping for a couple years so this might be a good option.Hey @jamesonline,
Thanks for your comments! You're also now in the drawing!
Host of The Automation ShowOne of those devices could come in handy.Shawn,
Another great episode of The Automation Show, looking forward for more...
I am also glad that companies like Automation Networks are providing cheaper $$$ alternative devices/software to what AB/RA have to offer.Definitely tempted to give this a try on a customer's site where they had 2+ dozen or so dh+ devices networked and where the 1784-U2DHP just wasn't reliable.Thanks for your comment @lomenop, you're now entered in the drawing!
