Gateways and Bridges

CAN/CANopen® to PROFIBUS®, PROFINET® or EtherCAT®

Linking industrial Bus Systems

The portfolio of esd's gateway familiy contains linking of CAN and CANopen to industrial field bus systems like PROFIBUS-DP, PROFINET and EtherCAT.

Gateway Configuration directly by PROFIBUS / PROFINET Application Program

All CAN- / CANopen Gateways to PROFIBUS respectively PROFINET is in common that they do not need external configuration by the user. The complete configuration and setup is executed by means of the PLC's application programm. Thus the exchange of a gateway in the field is very simple task. Additional external tools or ressources are not necessary in the field.

Bridge Function

Bridge functions for data exchange between two independent EtherCAT networks or two independent CAN segments - wireless as well - are available.
