Anybus Gateways Profinet-family.jpg_ico500HMS Industrial Networks releases new versions of their widely-used Anybus gateways for PROFINET IRT, enabling communication between machines and industrial networks, especially focusing on fieldbuses and industrial Ethernet. Anybus X-gateways connect any two industrial networks while Anybus Communicators connect non-networked devices via a serial line (RS232/422/485) or a CAN interface to all major fieldbus and industrial Ethernet networks. All Anybus X-gateways for PROFINET IRT are now upgraded to be conform to the PROFINET v2.3 specification, allowing up-to-date and conform connectivity between PROFINET IRT and a vast number of different industrial networks such as EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, Modbus-TCP and PROFIBUS. All new versions support PROFINET RT Class 1 and 3 and come with a PROFINET IRT Ethernet cut-through switch implemented in the module’s processor. The gateways are conformance-tested to support Class A, B and C. PROFINET IRT Device/Slave settings can be made either via the built-in web interface, or by importing the provided .GSDML file into engineering tool of the controlling PLC.
