Anybus X-gateway - Modbus TCP Client - DeviceNet Adapter

The Anybus X-gateway allows you to seamlessly inter-connect PLC control systems and their connected devices between Modbus TCP and DeviceNet 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 on the DeviceNet network and as a full Master/Client on the Modbus TCP network. The data transmission between the two networks is completely transparent with a maximum I/O data capacity of 256 bytes in each direction.

EASY CONFIGURATION - NO PROGRAMMING REQUIRED!

Configuration is made via Ethernet and a built-in web page. The configuration page is used to configure Ethernet TCP/IP settings, Modbus-TCP client/server configuration and I/O data size transfer between Modbus TCP and the chosen network.
