RS485 Gateway


The advanced LAN-RS485 gateway is a groundbreaking solution for efficient communication in the semiconductor industry. It enables seamless message exchange between a host system and up to 15 readers, with the ASC-I1 protocol ensuring reliable communication via LAN or RS232 interfaces. The RS485 bus communication between the gateway and the readers is precise, with each reader having an individually adjustable rotary switch and yellow and red status LEDs.

The internal RS485 communication is optimized by a highly developed ASC-I1 communication protocol, which is specifically tailored to the requirements of the semiconductor industry. In conjunction with our LFM Load Port Reader, which has an advanced RS485 interface integrated, this solution represents the ideal upgrade for outdated LON gateway and reader installations. This innovative technology not only contributes to the optimization of communication processes and data management in semiconductor systems but also offers a future-oriented alternative for reliable and efficient performance.

With this advanced integration of technologies, companies in the semiconductor industry are able to increase productivity and adapt to the demands of modern manufacturing. Seamless communication, clear status displays and tailored protocols make this LAN-RS485 gateway a key component for an effective and powerful operational structure in semiconductor production.
