The Anybus X-gateway allows you to seamlessly inter-connect/extend PLC control systems and their connected devices on a DeviceNet network.
The X-gateways primary function is with the fast transfer of cyclic I/O data between the two PLC systems. The gateway acts as a Scanner on one side of DeviceNet network and as an Adapter on the other side. The data transmission is completely transparent with a maximum data capacity of 512 bytes in each direction.
The connection between the two networks is quickly set up in the Anybus Configuration Manager software, included with the X-gateway. No programming skills are needed to set up the X-gateway. As factory default the X-gateways have a pre-defined I/O size of 20 bytes I/O.
An Anybus X-gateway with an integrated DeviceNet Scanner interface can be used when there is no existing DeviceNet controlling PLC.
DeviceNet Adapter settings can be made either via on-board switches, or by importing the provided .EDS file into engineering tool of the controlling PLC.
