Discover the ANC-120e: Revolutionizing USB to DH+ Conversion

Meet the ANC-120e – a game-changer in USB to Allen Bradley Data Highway Plus (DH+) PLC Programming Cables. With a price tag of $995 USD, this USB to DH+ Converter emerges as an affordable, high-performance alternative to the traditional models like the 1784-U2DHP, 1784-PKTX, 1784-KTX, and 1784-PCMK.

Unveiling the ANC-120e USB to DH+ Converter


 The ANC-120e, priced at $995 USD, offers substantial savings over models such as the 1784-U2DHP.

Rapid Communication:

By harnessing 12Mb USB speeds and supporting DH+ communications up to 230.4Kb, the ANC-120e ensures swift and effective data transfer.

User-Friendly Setup:

Thanks to the RSLINX Controllogix Ethernet/IP driver, configuring the ANC-120e is simple and user-friendly.

Enhanced Connectivity and Compatibility

In addition to these features, the ANC-120e shines by offering broad connectivity to various HMI, SCADA, and PLC programming packages. Its versatility is particularly beneficial for communication with older PLC-5 and SLC 5/04 systems on DH+.

Supporting a Range of Applications

Furthermore, the ANC-120e aligns with all SCADA, HMI, and PLC programming packages that require direct Ethernet/IP access to DH+ nodes, including PLC-5 and SLC 5/04s. Compatibility with software like RSLinx Classic and RSLOGIX 5 / 500 further extends its utility across different industrial environments.

Convenient and Robust Design for a USB to DH+ Converter

Notably, the ANC-120e is designed for convenience. It allows for direct connection to a DH+ network via a USB port (USB to DH+ Converter), either through AB blue hose wiring or an 8-Pin Din connector. This ease of connection, combined with its robust design, makes the ANC-120e a reliable tool for industrial environments.

Balancing Affordability with High Performance

Offered at $1,295 USD, the ANC-120e is not only wallet-friendly but also excels in performance. It achieves a full 12Mb USB speed, avoiding the common bottlenecks found in RS232 USB conversions. Additionally, it’s compatible with a wide array of 1784-xxxx models.

Availability and Assurance

Ready for purchase, the ANC-120e – a reliable and efficient USB to DH+ converter – comes with an attractive 30-day free trial and a lifetime replacement warranty for any defects.
