In today's episode of The Automation Podcast I take a look at the ANC-120e USB to Data Highway Plus converter from Automation Networks.
Well if you haven't looked lately, that Rockwell cable now lists for a whopping $3,140, while the ANC-120e lists for $995.
But how well could a third party DH+ cable really work?
In fact, I couldn't see any difference between my ControlLogix Gateway and the ANC-120e.
There must be some catch right? Like it's hard to setup or something?
In fact, the entire podcast from un-boxing to making online edits in a SLC-5/04 and PLC-5/20, took less than 20 minutes.
So if you're in the market for a USB to Data Highway Plus converter, or just curious to see how the ANC-120e works, check out Episode 35 of The Automation Podcast below:
