    USB to Data Highway Plus using the ANC-120e, a lower cost alternative to the 1784-U2DHP

    In today's episode of The Automation Podcast I take a look at the ANC-120e USB to Data Highway Plus converter from Automation Networks.

    Now you may be asking yourself why the folks over at Automation Networks would release a USB to DH+ converter when Rockwell already makes the 1784-U2DHP?

    Well if you haven't...

    Nice to know there's something else out there besides Allen Bradley's USB. I did have a customer who had more than 2 dozen dh+ devices and Allen Bradley's USB would not reliably stay online. Thought the one we had was defective, so we tried another and experienced the same issue. An older PCMIA device on that same network worked like a champ. AB's response was that the older PCMIA was built to withstand noise better than the new USB. I'll consider this the next time I have a dh+ network, thanks!
