Anybus X-gateway – DeviceNet Adapter - Lonworks Slave

The Anybus X-gateway allows you to seamlessly inter-connect PLC control systems and their connected devices between DeviceNet and Lonworks networks.

FAST COPYING OF I/O DATA

The X-gateways primary function is with the fast transfer of cyclic I/O data between the two networks. This offloads your PLC from working with additional calculations. The gateway acts as an Adapter/Slave on both networks. The data transmission is completely transparent with a maximum data capacity of 512 bytes in each direction.

EASY CONFIGURATION - NO PROGRAMMING REQUIRED!

The connection between the two networks is quickly set up in the Anybus Configuration Manager software, included with the X-gateway. No programming skills are needed to set up the X-gateway. As factory default the X-gateways have a pre-defined I/O size of 20 bytes I/O.
