The Anybus X-gateway allows you to seamlessly inter-connect PLC control systems and their connected devices between Modbus TCP and PROFINET-IRT networks.
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 a Server on the Modbus TCP network and as a Device on the PROFINET-IRT network. The data transmission between the two networks is completely transparent with a maximum data capacity of 512 bytes in each direction.
The connection between the two networks is quickly set up in the Anybus Configuration Manager software, included with the X-gateway. No programming skills are needed to set up the X-gateway. As factory default the X-gateways have a pre-defined I/O size of 20 bytes I/O.
Modbus TCP Slave settings can be made either via the built-in web interface, or by importing the provided .EDS file into engineering tool of the controlling PLC.
PROFINET IRT Device/Slave settings can be made either via the built-in web interface, or by importing the provided .GSDML file into engineering tool of the controlling PLC.
