The ProLinx EtherNet/IP to DNP 3.0 Master Gateway creates a powerful connection between devices on an EtherNet/IP network and DNP Slave devices. This stand-alone DIN-rail mounted protocol gateway provides one Ethernet port and one serial port. The EtherNet/IP protocol driver supports the Explicit Messaging implementation of the protocol. User-configurable as both a Client and a Server, the EtherNet/IP port is a very powerful data transfer tool. The DNP 3.0 Master protocol driver supports Master implementations of the protocol on one port. This port is fully configurable.
This area contains module configuration information such as port configuration, network information, and command configuration. This configuration file is downloaded to, or uploaded from, this area.
Application Data Area
The data area is used to store and retrieve data by the protocol drivers and for data exchange between protocols. The database is used as a source for write commands to remote devices and holds data collected from the remote devices. Commands defined in the configuration file (stored in the configuration data area) control how the data is to be handled in the database.
The internal database is shared between all ports on the module and is used as a conduit to pass information from a device on one network to one or more devices on another network.
The ProLinx module contains an internal database that consists of areas for application data, status information, and configuration information.
Status Data Area
This area is used to store error codes, counters, and port status information for each port.

The DFNT-DNPM modules are the ideal solution for the many applications where EtherNet/IP connectivity can be used to integrate DNP 3.0 Master serial devices into a system. The EtherNet/IP gateway is a powerful module designed with both Client and Server support, enabling easy connection to Rockwell Automation PLCs (CLX, SLC, PLC, CPLX, and similar devices). In combination with the DNP Master device support, the module provides a very powerful interface to the many DNP devices which are in use in the industrial marketplace today. Applications for the module are found in most industries, especially the Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food Processing.
