The Anybus X-gateway copies I/O-data in both directions thus enabling data exchange between the two networks. Default I/O configuration is 20 bytes Input and 20 bytes Output. Changing default settings is very easy using the windows based configuration software Anybus Configuration Manager X-gateway from HMS (free of charge).
The AS-Interface Master for the Anybus X-gateway implements an extended AS-Interface master (M4), and complies to version 3.0 of the AS-I Complete Specification.
It supports up to 62 slaves with a maximum of 248 digital input and 186 output signals. It also supports 124 analog values. All standard services are available including detailed diagnostics. The network interface is optically isolated and equipped with a 2-pin pluggable screw connector. The Master supports intelligent auto-configuration via the on-board configuration button or manual configuration via a terminal program such as Hyper Terminal for Windows.
The AS-interface module is certified by the AS Interface user organization and has proven conformance and interoperability with leading manufacturers of I/O, sensors, valves etc.
The ControlNet interface is implemented according to the ControlNet international specification for a Communication adapter (profile number 12). A connection to the AnyBus-S ControlNet module can be opened from a ControlNet scanner. The size of the connection can be up to 450 bytes in each direction. The ControlNet module can be read or written to by UCMM (Unscheduled) messages from another ControlNet adapter (slave) or scanner (master). The module is equipped with two BNC contacts for connection to ControlNet. If redundant operation is desired, both connectors are used; otherwise either connector A or B is used. The module is also equipped with a NAP (Network access port) for temporary connection of configuration tools. The minimum Network update time, (NUT), of the module is 5ms. The ControlNet interface module is certified by the ODVA and has proven conformance and interoperability with leading PLC´s, HMI´s etc
