The gateways provide cost-effective and easy-to-deploy solutions for any type of data conversion, whether the application is simple serial bus, classic Fieldbus, Ethernet, Real-Time Ethernet or a mix of these protocols.
The gateways are configured with Windows based tool providing network set up and diagnostic information. LED indicators provide status information for rapid on-site diagnostics.
The protocol conversions are pre-programmed and loaded as firmware into the device on demand. Conversions needing the same physical network interface can be managed by a single device variant. This means that a single device can serve, for example, as a PROFIBUS Slave or a PROFIBUS Master through a simple firmware change.
