HMS Industrial Networks AB

Anybus X - Modbus RTU Slave to J1939, AB7612

Type:  Network Gateway
Description:  The Anybus-X J1939 Gateway provides connectivity between a Modbus RTU (serial) network and a J1939 Heavy Duty vehicle (CAN) network. The ABX appears as a Modbus Slave device allowing a Modbus Master to read or write data from the J1939 network. HMS provides the ABX with a Windows based configuration tool (BWConfig). This PC based software allows the user to map J1939 parameter (PGN) data into a range of memory addressable through the ABX Modbus RTU interface. The ABX is configured using BWConfig and consists of setting up an I/O table containing selected J1939 PGNs and the rate that each will be read or written from the J1939 network. BWConfig will automatically map the I/O table to a range of addresses accessible from the ABX Modbus RTU interface. The configuration is downloaded from the PC to the ABX via an RS232 connection and is saved in FLASH memory.
