Anybus X-gateways are designed for use in Industrial Automation plants where increasingly many different Fieldbus and Ethernet networks are used. The X-gateways help System Integrators to easily interconnect Modbus TCP/IP, Modbus Plus, or Modbus RTU to virtually any other network, enabling consistent information flow throughout the entire plant. The Ethernet interface consists of an embedded Modbus TCP 10/100 Mbps interface with IT functionality such as Web-server, SSI-scripts, Flash file system, FTP-server, e-mail client, and Telnet. It is possible to build web pages displaying and controlling a factory floor process with data from the other connected network. It is built on a dedicated 32-bit RISC micro processor (+60 mips) ensuring fast and secure Ethernet performance. The CANopen interface is an adapter class product allowing fast data exchange. The CANopen slave's data map consists of Process Data Objects (fast data) and Service Data Objects (slow data). The data on the CANopen bus is updated when a change is made or on request from another node. The CANopen interface module is certified by the Can In Automation organization and has proven conformance and interoperability with leading PLCs, SoftPLCs, HMIs and other devices.
