isNet Lite is the head module of every isNet Line gateway solution. Combined with any Fieldbus expansion modules, its purpose is to exchange process data between field devices and Ethernet-based PLCs. Additionally, it allows engineering stations to access field device parameters for configuration purposes, diagnosis, and asset management.
The gateway can be used as a Profinet device or as a Modbus-TCP server. For access to HART field devices, the HART over IP protocol is implemented too. Also, an OPC server is available for data access from any OPC client application. The isNet Lite can be controlled and configured by using a web interface that allows diagnosis and maintenance of the main module and its connected expansion modules.
