The I-7242D allows a master located on a DeviceNet network to enter into a dialogue with the slaves on a Modbus RTU network. It's a "Group 2 Only Slave" device in the DeviceNet network, and supports "Predefined Master/Slave Connection Set". From the view of the Modbus network, it is a Modbus RTU master which polls all the predefined data of the Modbus RTU slaves and bypasses the DeviceNet control commands to the Modbus slaves. This device is widely used in the application of building automation, remote data acquisition, environment control and monitoring, laboratory equipment & research, factory automation, etc. The I-7242D also has the utility tool which is used to configure the I-7242D's parameters and build the EDS file. Through the EDS file to the I-7242D, it is easy to apply the Modbus RTU devices in DeviceNet applications.
