Product description:

The Anybus X-gateway inter-connects a PROFIBUS and Modbus TCP network and allows a seamless data flow between the two PLC systems.


Fast copying of I/O data:

The X-gateways primary function is 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 Slave on the PROFIBUS network and as a full Master/Client on the Modbus TCP network. The data transmission between the two networks is completely transparent with a maximum I/O data capacity of 256 bytes in each direction.


Easy configuration:

The connection between the two networks is quickly set up. No programming skills are needed. Just connect, configure, and you’re done!
