Gateways and Bridges
CAN/CANopen® to PROFIBUS®, PROFINET® or EtherCAT®
Coupling of industrial bus systems
The gateway portfolio includes couplings from CAN and CANopen to industrial fieldbus systems such as PROFIBUS-DP, PROFINET and EtherCAT.
Configuration of gateways directly via PROFIBUS or PROFINET user program
The CAN / CANopen gateways to PROFIBUS or PROFINET have in common that the modules themselves do not have to be configured externally by the user. The entire configuration and parameterization is carried out by the user program of the PLC. This makes it much easier to replace a module. Additional external tools or aids for configuring and parameterizing the gateways are therefore not required in the field.
Bridge functionalities for data exchange between two independent EtherCAT networks or two independent CAN segments are available.
