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 very simple and is carried out using the RS232 configuration port and a standard terminal interface on a PC, such as Hyper Terminal for Windows. The Interbus 2Mbps interface with a Fiber Optic bus-interface is an important complement to the standard module for copper-based cabling. The Fiber Optic module is based on the OPC chipset from Phoenix, which gives support for optical diagnostics. This means the unit has a high EMC immunity and also a very low EMC emission. The Interbus interface 2Mbps module is a slave node that can be read from/written to by an Interbus master. Interbus has two ways of exchanging data; one through fast cyclical I/O data called 'Process Data', and one through a somewhat slower protocol called PCP, mainly used for configuration purposes. It supports Interbus PCP V2.0. The module supports up to 10 words of data on the bus, out of which up to four words can be used for PCP. The Modbus RTU Slave interface is implemented according to Modbus Protocol implementation 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 baud rate is 19200 Bit/s but can be modified on the gateway between 1200 Bit/s to 57 600 Bit/s.
