Description The DEB is a Unity compatible, fully functional, bi-directional Modbus Serial to Ethernet bridge. Devices on one network can access devices on the other network. This network traffic can be programming commands as well as I/O and register data. In addition, the DEB can act as:
The DEB is a DIN rail version of the old EPE5-T.
Front Panel Operation The DEB includes a 5-button keypad and a password protected LCD screen. Nearly all Etherent, MB+, and serial port settings may be inspected and modified from the front panel. View statistical information about each of the ports, check firmware versions, even reset the unit to factory defaults without a PC.

Modbus Router The DEB can route messages between Modbus/TCP Ethernet and Modbus Serial (RTU or ASCII); all at the same time. The Ethernet port may be a client and server. The serial ports may be connected to masters or slaves. Any master can communicate with any slave on any other port. These masters may be a programming package such as Unity Pro, Concept, or ProWORX.
Legacy SY/MAX Opeation The DEB supports legacy Square D SY/MAX communication including Ethernet and serial. The Ethernet port may be configured to operate in a combined Modbus/TCP and SY/MAX mode providing high speed bridging between Quantum NOEs and Model 650 and 450 PLCs. SY/MAX serial, PNIM, Net-to-Net, and RNIM protocols are all supported to tie in older SY/NET equipment with a newer Modbus system.
The DEB is available as:
The DEB has the following equipment available:
Warranty / Manual: The DEB is furnished with a user manual on cd and carries a one year warranty from the date of shipment. During the warranty period, free firmware upgrades are available. See Niobrara's Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale for additional warranty information.
Dimensions: DIN rail mount 4.4" wide by 4.4" tall by 3.5" deep. Approximately 1.2 pounds net.
Power Requirements: 9-30VDC 6W - 3 position removable connector is provided.
Ethernet Port: 10/100BaseT port with RJ45 connector on bottom of unit. Modbus/TCP and/or SY/MAX 802.3 protocols. E-Peer compatible.
Serial Ports: Two isolated ports selectable between RS-232 (RJ45 connector) and RS-485 (5 position removable screw terminal is provided). Independently configurable for baud rate, data bits, parity, stop bits, and protocol. RS-485 mode is 2- and 4-wire compatible.
Serial Port Modes: Each serial port can independently operate in any of the following modes: Modbus (RTU or ASCII, Master or Slave), SY/MAX; Net-to-Net; Peripheral; PLogic; Multidrop; IDEC; Gateway; Transparent; Share; PNIM; RNIM (Master or Slave); Transfer; Chevron. Dual slave.
Setup Registers: Module configuration is stored in internal registers and is compatible with older MEB-RT models. These setup registers can be accessed through any of the MEB's ports (in most modes). Configuration is restored from FLASH memory after a power cycle.
Environmental:Operating conditions are 0-50C; humidity up to 90% noncondensing; pressure altitude -200 to +10,000 ft MSL.
