Anybus X-gateway - PROFIBUS (Slave) / EtherNet/IP (Master)
The Anybus X-gateway inter-connects a PROFIBUS and EtherNet/IP network and allows a seamless data flow between the two PLC systems.
Fast copying of I/O data:
The X-gateways primary function is 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 a Scanner on the EtherNet/IP network and a Slave on the PROFIBUS network. The data transmission is completely transparent with a maximum data capacity of 512 bytes in each direction.
The connection between the two networks is quickly set up. No programming skills are needed. Just connect, configure, and you’re done!
