The Anybus X-gateway copies I/O-data in both directions thus enabling data exchange between the two networks. Default I/O configuration is 16 bytes Input and 16 bytes Output, two bytes in each direction is used for the Control word and the Status word. Changing default settings is very simple by changing the Fieldbus parameters from the CANopen configuration tool. An external CANopen configuration tool is used to configure the nodes on the CANopen network. The resulting Concise DCF file is downloaded to the CANopen network master using a CANopen adapter. Embedded into a small plastic housing, the CANopen X-gateway is a slim device for standard DIN rail mounting.
The CANopen master (manager) can connect up to 126 slaves and complies with the CANopen communication profile DS301 v4.0.2. The X-gateway supports the different CANopen functionalities as Heartbeat, Nodeguarding, Sync and Emcy. 128 Receive and 128 Transmit PDOs are available to be used, each PDO can transfer up to 8 bytes.
The X-gateway CANopen can be configurared with the “Anybus Configuration Manager CANopen” which is included in the price of the X-gateway and can be downloaded from www.anybus.com.
The ControlNet interface is implemented according to the ControlNet international specification for a Communication adapter (profile number 12). A connection to the ControlNet side 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.
