Question: I want to connect by AB Series 5 PLC via 10BaseT cable to Citect so that I can use the Interchange software. What type of hardware do I need to connect the plug on the AB PLC to the twisted pare cable? 

You need a twisted pair transceiver to connect the transceiver port on the AB PLC to the twisted pair cable. We have used the following transceivers:
  • Allied Telesis, CentreCOM 210TS, for use with 10 BASE T.
  • Allied Telesis, CentreCOM MX10S, for use with 10 BASE 2, thin ethernet.

You can purchase these transceiver from you local network hardware supplier.
