The Anybus X-gateway series consists of more than 200 different products, aimed at connecting almost every possible combination of industrial networks. The product family offers Master / Scanner functionality for Profibus, DeviceNet, EtherNet / IP and AS-Interface and includes Slave / Adapter functionality for 16 other networks.
Make combinations of fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet networks such as: CANopen, CC-Link, ControlNet, J1939, Lonworks, Interbus, Modbus RTU, as well as industrial Ethernet versions such as Profinet, Profinet-IRT, IRT Fiber Optic, EtherNet / IP, ModbusTCP, EtherCAT and CC-Link IE Field. For some Ethernet networks, the X-gateway supports dual-port Ethernet interfaces that enable daisy-chaining and eliminate the need for external switches.
Compatible with all leading PLC manufacturers
X-gateways have been tested and proven with all leading manufacturers of PLCs such as Siemens, Allen Bradley, Schneider Electric, Mitsubishi, ABB, Omron, Hitachi, Beckhoff, Pheonix Contact, Bosch Rexroth and many more.
Easy installation - no programming is required and no programming knowledge is required to configure X gateways. At the factory, the X gateways have a predefined I / O size of 20 bytes I / O.
Fast transparent data transfer between the two networks is the primary focus of the X-gateway with the cyclical I / O data transfer between two networks. Depending on the network, combinations are possible and also acyclic parameter data can be transferred. (Eg SDO, V1, PCP or Explicit messaging) Use of parameter data increases the functionality of the gateway and enables the transmission of time-critical data between the two networks. The X-gateway can also mix parameters and I / O data and thus enable a flexible connection between the two networks.
