EtherCat Gateway Family

As the latest addition to the vendor’s X-gateways family, 19 EtherCat gateways allow EtherCat connected devices to communicate with other fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks and vice versa.

The new series includes versions for all popular fieldbuses including Profibus, DeviceNet, CANopen, Modbus, Interbus, CC-Link, ControlNet, AS-Interface, Profinet, EtherNet/IP and Modbus-TCP. Typical applications are installations in manufacturing plants where fieldbus-based segments are integrated into new sections based on EtherCat. After start-up, the gateways are ready for data exchange between the two selected networks. Configuration is quick, says the vendor, requiring no programming or specific PC hardware or software. The gateways are compact devices for standard DIN rail mounting and 24 volt industrial power supply. The series is CE-marked and certified for UL, ATEX and Class 1/Div 2 hazardous locations.
