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 FIPIO interface is based an embedded AnyBus-S module providing industrial performance and quality. FIPIO station address can be selected via switches on the end side of the module. A transformer connection on the module provides a isolated fieldbus interface. 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.
