The Anybus X-gateway allows you to seamlessly inter-connect or extend PLC control systems and their connected devices on an EtherCAT network.
The X-gateways primary function is with the fast transfer of cyclic I/O data between the two PLC systems. This offloads your PLC from working with additional calculations. The gateway acts as a Slave on both networks and provides a simple network extension. 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.
EtherCAT Slave settings can be made by importing the provided .XML file into engineering tool of the controlling PLC.
