Anybus X-gateway – CANopen Master – ControlNet Adapter

The Anybus X-gateway CANopen provides a seamless connection between a ControlNet network and a secondary CANopen sub-network. This makes it possible to integrate CANopen devices into a ControlNet PLC system.

FAST COPYING OF I/O DATA
The X-gateway's primary function is fast transfer of cyclic I/O data between the two networks. I/O data from the ControlNet network is written into CANopen objects that can be mapped into CANopen PDOs and vice versa. The gateway acts as a full Master/Manager on the CANopen network and as an Adapter on the ControlNet network. The data transmission between the two networks is completely transparent with a maximum data capacity of 510 bytes in each direction.

EASY CONFIGURATION - NO PROGRAMMING REQUIRED!
CANopen configuration can easily be made through the included Anybus Configuration Manager CANopen software, or with any other standard CANopen configuration tool. No programming skills are needed.
