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 gateway consists of two independent Interbus Interfaces, galvanically and logically isolated.
Each of the two Interbus 2MBit/s interfaces 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 Pheonix, 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 called ?Process 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.
