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 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 and other devices. Baud rate and MAC ID can be set via DIP switches. 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 baudrate is 19200 Bit/s but can be modified on the gateway between 1200 Bit/s to 57 600 Bit/s.
