The Anybus Communicator Gateway is an external DIN-rail mounted gateway which provides Ethernet Modbus-TCP network connectivity via a serial RS232/RS422/RS485 interface. The Communicator contains an embedded Modbus-TCP and EtherNet/IP 10/100 Mb interface with IT functionality such as WEB-server, Flash file system, FTP-server, e-mail client, Telnet etc. The Communicator performs an intelligent conversion between the serial protocol and the chosen industrial network. The translation between the serial protocol and the network is configured by using the software "ABC Config Tool".
