Communication networks vary greatly from site to site and often change as technology advances. Converters and gateways provide a bridge between different protocols and standards that exist in the industrial automation field. Converters allow exchanges between RS-232, RS-422, USB, and RS-485 signals while gateways convert Modbus TCP to/from Modbus RTU/ASCII.
