The Anybus X-gateway allows you to seamlessly inter-connect/extend PLC control systems and their connected devices on a Lonworks 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 and provides a simple network extension. The data transmission is completely transparent with a maximum data capacity of 512 bytes (256 LW variables) 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.
