Panel-Tec Products

Panel-Tec specializes in developing embedded systems products for factory automation and industrial control applications. We provide solutions to communications and connectivity prob-lems, with a wide customer base including Schneider, Siemens, Hitachi, Baldor, TB Woods, GSE Scale Systems, EIM Controls, DE-STA-CO and many others.

Our gateway products transfer control and status information between devices and networks us-ing different HVAC and industrial protocols. We support connections to DeviceNet (CAN), Mod-bus Plus, Profibus DP, Modbus/TCP and Ethernet/IP networks, and many other industrial net-works and serial protocols for PLCs, motor drives and other devices. And our RF products ex-tend that connectivity over wireless radio links, greatly enhancing the range and versatility of in-stallations.

In addition to our own standard product lines, we develop custom communications interfaces for integration into other products. These products include motor drives and controllers, valve ac-tuators, scales, water savers, smart motors and robot controllers. We tailor the product inter-face to the product itself, using whatever technology is available for control and monitoring of the product. We have experience with several interface technologies, including serial and paral-lel interfaces, CAN, SPI, I2C, Dual Port RAM, Dual FIFO and USB.

Though our emphasis is on embedded systems, we also develop Windows based application software and drivers to complement those systems. Driver software is used to facilitate access to our PCI, PC/104 and USB interface products. Configuration software allows users to create and maintain custom configurations for our gateway and interface products, and update the firmware on those products.     


Our MicroBridge product line features a durable plastic enclosure with a built-in DIN rail mount.  Different versions of this product support combinations of 2 or 3 serial ports, Modbus Plus, Modbus/TCP and Ethernet/IP, and supports a wide variety of gateway and bridge applications.

MicroGate II

Smaller than the MicroBridge, the 2-port MicroGate II product line features a compact, in-line design that can fit in a cable tray. 


Our 5-port PEX (Port Expander) provides multiple-master or -slave connectivity on a Modbus ASCII/RTU or Allen Bradley DF1 network.
