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 carried out using the RS232 configuration port and a standard terminal interface on a PC, such as Hyper Terminal for Windows. The DeviceNet Master interface can act both as a Master/Scanner and/or Adapter/Slave. The entire DeviceNet protocol is implemented into the module. The module manages control of up to 63 DeviceNet slaves. Full DeviceNet configuration can be defined and loaded into the AnyBus-M module via the HMS configuration software NetTool-DN (purchased as a separate accessory) or via Rockwell?s RSNetWorx. 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.
