Anybus X-gateway - PROFIBUS (Slave) / CANopen (Master)
The Anybus X-gateway inter-connects a PROFIBUS and CANopen network and allows a seamless data flow between the two PLC systems.
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 PROFIBUS 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 a Slave on the PROFIBUS network. The data transmission between the two networks is completely transparent with a maximum data capacity of 510 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!
