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 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 ControlNet interface is implemented according to the ControlNet international specification for a Communication adapter (profile number 12). A connection to the Anybus-S ControlNet module 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. The ControlNet interface module is certified by the ODVA and has proven conformance and interoperability with leading PLC´s, HMI´s etc.
The Profinet IO interface is a complete solution for a Profinet IO slave Device. The module is based on the Siemens Profinet IO software technology.
The Profinet IO baudrate is 100Mbit/s (full duplex). The IP-address and additional IP-settings is easily configured with the Anybus IPconfig utility for Windows. Additional ways to set the IP-address are either via DHCP or the Profinet configuration tool. Four diagnostic LEDs will continuously indicate the actual Profinet IO status and possible error messages. The Profinet IO interface uses a normal RJ45 connector for the bus connection.
IT-functions like WEB-server, E-mail client, FTP-server are also supported. The IT functions can be used simultaneously with the Profinet IO communication.
Modbus/TCP is also supported with “Read Data” functions.
