Communicating with a GE 9070 PLC

Just some info that I recently discovered and figured was useful:

The GE 9070 cannot directly communicate with the RMC75E or RMC150E via Ethernet. One option is to use a serial to Ethernet converter. One possible one is the Lantronix UDS1100-IAP, which costs US $153 (http://www.neteon.net/prod.aspx?clvl=4&c1=1&c2=3&c3=148&p=421). It can convert Modbus/RTU to Modbus/TCP. I have tried this converter, and it works very well with a C-more HMI, so I assume it will work with the GE9070 also.

Attached is a document describing how to set up the UDS1100-IAP for communication with the RMC150E.

For converting from serial to Ethernet for other devices and protocols, here are some products:
