The new gateway, which is fully backward-compatible, comes with a USB interface, enabling users to easily connect it to a PC and configure the network communication via the Windows-based Anybus Configuration Manager. New housing with upright design requires less rack space and enables easier installation in the switching cabinet. The flexible design also allows mounting on the side (flat) similar to the previous version of the X-gateway. Additionally, the gateway now offers lower power consumption. The new release provides connectivity to CC-Link IE Field in the X-gateway family, and several of the industrial Ethernet versions now include integrated dual-port Ethernet interfaces with an integrated switch, removing the need for external switches.
