Network to Network Gateways

 

Connect any two industrial networks - Fieldbus, or Industrial Ethernet or connect to IT systems via MQTT or OPC UA using the Anybus X-Gateway.

 

 

Anybus X-gateways helps you to easily connect industrial networks and PLC systems, enabling a consistent information flow throughout the entire plant. In addition, the new IIoT range enables connection via MQTT and OPC UA. Giving your IT systems access to device data.

 

Get fast transfer of cyclic I/O data between two similar or dissimilar networks, offloading the PLC from working with complex calculations. 

 

 

What you can do with an Anybus X-gateway?

 

Connect to MQTT and OPC UA

18 new X-gateway versions connect almost any device on a traditional Fieldbus or Industrial Ethernet network via MQTT or OPC UA. Get device data to your IT systems.

 

Make PLCs talk

Connect two PLC systems and their proprietary industrial networks from different brands such as Siemens, Rockwell, Schneider Electric, Mitsubishi, Beckhoff, ABB, Phoenix, etc.

 

Upgrade to industrial Ethernet

The easy way to migrate from fieldbus to industrial Ethernet. Retrofit an old PLC system, and connect it to a newer system, keeping existing I/O modules and wiring infrastructure.
 

Extend a production line

Extend an existing production segment by connecting new machines that communicate on other networks.

 

Create network segments

Divide a network topology into logical segments. Create clear cuts between different parts of the plant, both logical and electrical.

 

Connect enterprise systems

Integrate factory floor data with enterprise-level systems such as SCADA, SAP, OPC, etc. Anybus gateways are included in most of the major PLC manufacturers’ system building software making it easy for you to integrate them into your network design.
