The Anybus X-gateway allows you to seamlessly inter-connect PLC control systems and their connected devices between EtherNet/IP and PROFINET-IRT networks

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 the EtherNet/IP network and a Device on the PROFINET-IRT network. The data transmission is completely transparent with a maximum data capacity of 512 bytes in each direction.

Easy Configuration – No programming required!

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.

Product Information

  • Fast copying of cyclic I/O data between EtherNet/IP and PROFINET-IRT networks (10-15 ms)
  • Proven and tested with all PLC manufacturers
  • Powerful Scanner interface eliminates the need for a PLC controller on the EtherNet/IP network
  • Supports up to a maximum of 512 bytes of Input and Output data in each direction
  • Possibility to build web pages displaying and controlling a factory floor process with data from the other connected network
  • Fast, dynamic transfer of fieldbus data to e.g. SCADA/HMI/Enterprise level systems based on Microsoft Windows, via the included Anybus OPC server
  • Optional control status information added to I/O data for diagnostic purposes
  • Robust stand-alone housing for use in harsh industrial environments
  • Global free technical support and consultancy

An Anybus X-gateway with an integrated EtherNet/IP Scanner interface can be used when there is no existing EtherNet/IP controlling PLC. The X-gateway will perform EtherNet/IP Scanner functions.
