Orbit Modules and Gateways - Modbus RTU, ProfiNet & EtherNet/IP


Bringing in process sensors into your PLC system...


The PIM, is a PLC communication gateways to ORBIT®3 digital measurement system, enable easy connections between Modbus RTU, ProfiNet™ or EtherNet/IP™ protocols.

The PIM makes it simple to interface a wide range of contact and non contact linear measurement sensors, rotary encoders, temperature and pressure sensors and discrete inputs and outputs via Modbus RTU, ProfiNet™ or EtherNet/IP™ protocols.

Applications are found in many industries including manufacturing, automation and Semiconductor and pharmaceutical.
