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 Interbus 2MBit/s interface with a Fiber Optic bus-interface is an important complement to the standard module for copper based cabling. The Fiber Optic module is based on the OPC chipset from Phoenix, which gives support for optical diagnostics. This means the unit has a high EMC immunity and also a very low EMC emission. The Interbus interface 2Mbit/s module is a slave node that can be read from/written to by an Interbus master. Interbus has two ways of exchanging data; one through fast cyclical I/O data and one through a somewhat slower protocol called PCP, which is mainly used for configuration purposes. It supports Interbus PCP V2.0. The module supports up to 10 words of data on the bus, out of which up to four words can be used for PCP.
The EtherCAT Slave Interface for the Anybus X-gateway implements CANopen over EtherCAT, and exchanges up to 512 bytes of data in each direction. The interface acts as a slave node, which means it can be accessed by an EtherCAT master, but it will not initiate communication by itself.
The module has two RJ45 connectors using 100 Mbit full duplex Ethernet. For configuration a XML-format device despription file is supplied by HMS.
