Adapters Enable Fast and Simple Connectivity to Any Automation Architecture

ABB's RETA-02 PROFINET IO and Modbus/TCP adapter enables fast and simple connectivity of ABB drives to a PROFINET IO or a Modbus/TCP network. With ABB fieldbus adapters, users are free to choose and integrate their power devices to virtually any automation architecture.

The RETA-02 Ethernet Adapter module is an optional device that, when mounted under the cover of ABB drives, makes it possible to: 

  • Send control commands to the drive (Start, Stop, Run enable, etc.)
  • Send motor speed or torque reference to the drive
  • Send a process actual value or a process reference to the PID controller of the drive
  • Read status information and actual values from the drive
  • Change drive parameter values
  • Reset a drive fault

The fieldbus adapter can be ordered installed on new drives, or the module can be retrofitted to ABB’s existing drives. Key features include the following:

  • Compatible devices: Ethernet standard IEEE 802.3 and 802.3u devices
  • Medium: 10base-TX or 100base-TX
  • Termination: Internal
  • Wiring: CAT 5 UTP, CAT 5 FTP* or CAT 5 STP* (*Recommended)
  • Connector: RJ-45
  • Maximum segment length: 100 m
  • Topology: Bus, star
  • Serial communication type: Half and full Duplex
  • Transfer rate: 10/100 Mbps
  • Carrier protocol: TCP/IP
  • Application protocols: Modbus/TCP & PROFINET IO
