Gateway Bridges Profibus/CAN

The latest version of the Anybus gateway family bridges Profibus and SAE J1939 (CAN) networks.

The gateway enables a Profibus-DP Master to read and write J1939 network data for control and monitoring tasks. The gateway accomplishes this by operating simultaneously as a Profibus-DP Slave on a Profibus network and as a CAN node on a J1939 network. The gateway exchanges data from either network based on a user-defined configuration. A free Windows-based configuration tool allows the user to map J1939 parameter (PGN) data into the module’s input and output tables, accessible by the Profibus Master over the Profibus-DP network. With its rugged industrial design, the device is designed for use across a wide variety of applications and industries. Typical uses include applications in oil and gas production, or on-vehicle applications where the gateway is used as an interface between the J1939 network and Profibus based industrial PLCs.
