The EtherNet/IP-to-Profibus X-gateway is the latest member of the vendor’s Anybus X gateway family.

Aw 4154 0711 Np13

It is a configurable stand-alone gateway that allows plant-floor devices on the Profibus network to communicate with the devices on the EtherNet/IP network and vice versa. Typical applications are installations with mixed usage of Siemens and Rockwell PLCs such as automobile manufacturing plants where Profibus based segments shall be integrated into industrial Ethernet-based control applications with EtherNet/IP real-time protocol. The new X-gateway is a compact device for standard DIN rail mounting and 24 Volt industrial power supply. It functions as an adapter (slave) on the EtherNet/IP network and as a master on the Profibus side.
