Transfer data between a DeviceNet network up to a Ethernet network which can be Modbus TCP/ EtherNet/IP or HTTP

The X-gateways primary function is with the fast transfer of cyclic I/O data between the two networks. This offloads your PLC from working with additional calculations. The gateway acts as a Scanner on DeviceNet network and an Adapter on the EtherNet/IP network.

Easy Configuration – No programming required!

This Anybus X-gateway version has its owns Configuration Tool allows you to configure the parameters associated with the Ethernet and DeviceNet network interfaces. The included BWConfig is a Microsoft Windows application that communicates with the X-gateway over a standard RS-232 serial link using the PC serial port or USB serial adapter.

Product Information

  • Fast copying of cyclic I/O data between the two networks
  • Powerful Scanner interface eliminates the need for a PLC controller on the DeviceNet network 
  • Connects information or control level networks to device level networks for programming, configuration, control or data collection. (E.g. Modbus TCP to DeviceNet)
  • Provides CIP Router/Bridge functionality to connect EtherNet/IP to DeviceNet
  • Included IT functions – WEB-server, E-mail client, FTP-server, Telnet
  • Robust stand-alone housing for use in harsh industrial environments
  • Global free technical support and consultancy

An Anybus X-gateway with an integrated DeviceNet Scanner interface can be used when there is no existing DeviceNet controlling PLC.
