The Anybus X-gateway connects a CC-Link network with a Modbus RTU network and thus enables the seamless flow of information between the two PLC systems

The X-gateway is primarily intended for the transmission of cyclic I / O data between the two networks and thus relieves the PLC of additional tasks. The X-gateway is a slave / adapter on both sides. The data transfer is transparent and up to 512 bytes of I / O data can be transferred in each direction.

Easy Configuration – No programming required!

The connection between the two networks is configured with the “Anybus Configuration Manager” software. No programming skills are required for this. The amount of I / O data to be transferred is preset to 20 bytes at the factory.

Product Information

  • Fast exchange of cyclic I / O data between the two networks (10-15 ms)
  • Compatible with PLCs from leading manufacturers
  • Supports up to 512 bytes of input and output data in each direction
