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 carried out using the RS232 configuration port and a standard terminal interface on a PC, such as Hyper Terminal for Windows. The AnyBus-M AS-Interface Master module supports up to 62 slaves with a maximum of 248 digital input, 186 output signals. All standard services are available including detailed diagnostics. The network interface is optically isolated and equipped with a two-pin pluggable screw connector. The Master supports intelligent auto-configuration or manual configuration via terminal program such as Hyper Terminal for Windows. The AS-interface module is certified by the AS Interface user organization and has proven conformance and interoperability with leading manufacturers of I/O, sensors, valves etc. 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.
