ModbusTCP Master/Client – EtherCAT Slave Anybus X-gateway
The new Anybus X-gateway Modbus-TCP series makes it possible to integrate Modbus-TCP devices into almost any other PLC system and their supported networks. The X-gateway provides Modbus-TCP server connectivity to all major fieldbus and industrial Ethernet networks. Get up and running quickly with easy setup made in just a few steps.
Modbus-TCP is used for communication between intelligent devices, sensors and instruments; to monitor field devices using PCs and HMIs. Typical industry usage includes: Factory Automation, Transportation, Infrastructure, Energy Distribution, Oil and Gas and Manufacturing.
It is an intelligent gateway platform, which provides one side of the gateway with a Modbus-TCP Client (Master) interface and any one of 9 different fieldbus/Ethernet Slave interfaces on the other side. It basically forwards I/O data from one network to the other and vice versa.
Configuration is made with a standard web-browser. An easy-to-use tool for TCP/IP configuration is also available, the Anybus IPconfig. The uplink fieldbus or Ethernet slave interface to the PLC is configured with a standard device description file (GSD/EDS) in the PLC engineering tool.
With a broad range of devices supported, the Anybus X-gateway Modbus-TCP for EtherCat provides the user with one of the most comprehensive solutions for solving Modbus-TCP to EtherCat connectivity. In order to optimize the user experience, HMS provides free worldwide technical support for all of its products.
