About VPGate PROFIBUS DP to serial

The VPGate is built into the system and no knowledge of coding is needed for configuration. The PROFIBUS configuration tool is easy to use by personnel. 
On the PROFIBUS side it is a DP slave, and on the serial/MODBUS side master or slave. The parameters and behavior are configured simply through the GSD file in the configuration tool of the PROFIBUS master.
The VPGate is an economically attractive solution to enable integration in an existing network.
