Can anybody recommend a DH+ to Modbus Converter. I can't use a pro-soft card because the AB plc is from a OEM vendor won't warrantee if I change anything in the rack.

I have seen the specs and prices for both the SS Technologies Xlink and DataLink Technology unit.

SS tech is about 2x the price. Any thoughts on each.?

I have installations using the various DataLink units for almost ten years without a single problem. I've found them to be high quality compact units at a reasonable price.

The X-Link DH+ to Modbus solution is flawless (after more installations that I can accurately remember). I can't comment on the DL2000 solution.

DataLink's DL2000-CMX Modbus to DH+ interface has a single pc card module with CPU, firmware in flash and built-in serial network interfaces. A single board design is less expensive to manufacture than a "universal" protocol converter such as SST's XLink that has a CPU board and one or more plug-in pc cards. Universal converters
are usually more flexible and cost effective in multi-network / multi-protocol applications.

I used both X-Link and DL2000.
I would recommend X-Link, not DL2000.
