Communication Network to Network Gateway Applications

Interconnect two networks

Application 01: Master Ethernet/IP Network and Profibus Network

Description: Solution to Integrate an existing installation at device level using Modbus RTU to a new installation using an EtherNet/IP network. A VS-X network to network gateways is selected with a Modbus RTU or Modbus Plus Slave interface and a EtherNet/IP Slave/Adapter interface. This solution bridges fieldbus with Industrial Ethernet.

Application 02: Exchange data between two PLCs using a Profibus network.

Description: This application shows an installation that exchanges I/O data between two PLC’s using Profibus for the device level network. A VS- X gateway is used to connect the two PLC together and exchange data. Both PLC connects to the VS- X gateway as a master.
