1783-NATR, Network Address Translation Router
Simplified integration of machines into an existing network architecture

Wide deployment of EtherNet/IP in industrial automation means that there is a growing demand to properly manage machines on the network, while minimizing installation and configuration efforts associated with integrating hardware into an existing system. Machine builders can use the Allen-Bradley® 1783-NATR to deliver standard machines to end users without programming unique IP addresses. This enables machines to be added, moved, or replaced with little, to no configuration. By using 1783-NATR between the control network and the machine, it is configured once, which enables isolation of the machine's physical IP address from the control network to ease configuration efforts.

Are You Ready for Smart Manufacturing?
Is your organization ready for the investment and the reward?

Data collection, dashboards, sensors and machine controls have been around for a long time. So does that make smart manufacturing something new or just a repackaging of past practices with new technology? And for companies wanting to gain business value from smart operations, like new income streams, product and solution innovation, and increased asset utilization, where should they start? And how fast will they realize ROI? Improving productivity is a key benefit of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), but is it still the best target?

Conformal Coating
Protecting Your Automation Investment

What is Conformal Coating? Conformal coating is the process of spraying a non-conducting substance, an insulator, onto a device or component to help protect it from moisture, fungus, dust, corrosion, abrasion and other environmental stresses. It is a thin film that "conforms" to the varied profiles of an assembly. Why Use Conformal Coated Products? Conformal coating offers protection of circuitry from moisture, fungus, dust and corrosion caused by highly-polluted atmospheres. It also offers improved product life cycle when exposure to corrosive environment is present. It helps maintain long-term surface insulation resistance, ensuring operational integrity of the assembly.
