The AS-Interface Master – ModbusTCP Slave/Server Industrial Network 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 Anybus OPC Server is supported and included with this X-gateway. It enables fast and dynamic transfer of fieldbus data to and from e.g. SCADA/HMI/Enterprice level systems based on Microsoft Windows.
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-TCP interface consists of an embedded ModbusTCP 10/100 Mbit/s 2-port Ethernet interface with IT functionality such as WEB-server, SSI-scripts, Flash file system, FTP-server, Email client, Telnet etc. It is possible to build web pages displaying and controlling a factory floor process with data from the other connected network. The EtherNet/ModbusTCP interface module is certified by the Univeristy of Michigan and has proven conformance and interoperability with leading PLC´s, HMI´s etc. The 2-port Ethernet interface will allow daisy chaining thus removes the need for any external switch.
