New Gateway for Industrial applications

March 23, 2009
Based on the company’s netX chip, the new netTAP 100 gateway offers communication between the traditional fieldbus, real-time Ethernet based systems and serial protocols. 
With up to 1,000 protocol combinations, the gateway employs CANopen, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS, CCLink, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP, POWERLINK, PROFINET, SERCOS III, MB/RTU, MB ASCII RS232-, RS422 and RS485. The netTAP 100 can be configured to be a master or slave on either side of the gateway. The configuration tool is an enhanced version of SYCON.net and uses a standard USB port for configuration, along with loading network firmware and diagnostics. A mulit-media flash card or SD-card for storage of configuration data can be duplicated or transferred to multiple netTAPs on the network. Development tools are also available for custom protocol gateways utilizing any one of the company’s stacks and gateway application to their own protocol.  Hilscher North America, Inc.(630) 505-5301www.hilscher.com
