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, 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 high-performance DeviceNet Slave interface provides instant connectivity to the DeviceNet network. The module conforms to DeviceNet 2.0. The DeviceNet interface module is certified by the ODVA and has proven conformance and interoperability with leading PLCs, HMIs. Baud rate and MAC ID can be set via DIP switches.
Bridging of I/O data between two different networks; Supports 150 different network combinations; Easy configuration via Windows Hyper Terminal; IT Functions such as web server, e-mail client, SSI support, FTP and File access/security permissions on all Ethernet versions; OPC Server for all Anybus X-gateway Ethernet versions; DeviceNet Specification version: Vol 1: 2.0, Vol 2: 2.0; Conformance test version: A-12; I/O Slave messaging: Bit strobe, Polling, Cyclic, COS and Explicit Messaging
