HMS Industrial Networks' X-gateway allow any CANopen device to communicate with most other fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks.
HMS Industrial Networks has added 10 CANopen master gateways to its X-gateway line, which allow any CANopen enabled device with slave functionality to communicate with most other fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks. The gateway series includes versions for fieldbuses including Profibus, DeviceNet, Modbus, ControlNet and for industrial Ethernet with Profinet, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT and Modbus-TCP protocol.
The CANopen X-gateways act as links between two industrial networks. On the CANopen side, they function as a master (manager) and as slaves (servers) on the uplink network side. The implementation is based on HMS NP30 microprocessor and is certified by CAN in Automation (CIA) for full conformance to the CANopen DS 301 v4.0.2 standard.
