The Anybus-X gateway copies I/O-data in both directions enabling data exchange between the two networks. Default I/O configuration is 20 bytes Input and 20 bytes Output. Changing default settings is 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 Ethernet interface consists of an embedded Ethernet/IP 10/100 Mbps interface with IT functionality such as Web-server, SSI-scripts, Flash file system, FTP-server, e-mail client, Telnet. It is possible to build web pages displaying and controlling a factory floor process with data from the other connected network. It is built on a dedicated 32 bit RISC micro processor (+60 mips). The EtherNet/IP interface module is certified by the ODVA and has proven conformance and interoperability with leading PLCs, HMIs. 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.
