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 Modbus RTU Slave interface is implemented according to Modbus Protocol ref guide (PI-MBUS-300). All data is mapped to 3x and 4x Modbus areas meaning the Input Status and Output Register Word areas. The Modbus RTU standard baudrate is 19200 Bit/s but can be modified on the gateway between 1200 Bit/s to 57 600 Bit/s.
