The Anybus-X gateway copies I/O-data in both directions thus enabling data exchange between the two networks. Default I/O configuration is 20 bytes Input and 20 bytes Output. Changing default settings is carried out using the RS232 configuration port and a standard terminal interface on a PC, such as Hyper Terminal for Windows. The Modbus RTU Slave interface is implemented according to Modbus Protocol ref guide (PI-MBUS-300). All data is mapped to 3x and 4x Modbus areas meaning the Input Status and Output Register Word areas. The Modbus RTU standard baudrate is 19200 Bit/s but can be modified on the gateway between 1200 Bit/s to 57 600 Bit/s. The Modbus Plus interface is based on licensed chip-set and software from Schneider Electric. Supporting both the Global Database and Register mapping to 3x and 4x registers this module implements a versatile Modbus Plus interface. The Modbus Plus interface module is certified by the Modconnect and has proven conformance and interoperability with leading PLCs, HMIs.
