AB7000 - Profibus-DP serial Gateway
AB7000:Anybus Communicator - multiprotocol gateway configurable and programmable to bring their own serial devices into a Profibus network.
Anybus®. Communicator for Profibus allows the user to connect and communicate practically any serial device on a Profibus network.
Anybus®. Communicator is tested complying with current specifications that ensure compatibility of the Profibus network.
It acts as a slave device on the network and presents the data on the serial port to the master controller as I / O data.
Anybus®. Communicator supports the RS232, RS422 and RS485 serial communication without any change at the hardware level.
This allows connectivity to a wide range of serial devices.
Typical series applications include, variable frequency drives, sensors, actuators, human machine interfaces, barcode readers, RFID readers and industrial scales.
Is not required an high capacity of programming to set the Anybus®. Communicator: the configuration id one through a free and easy to use tool based on Windows&trade. ACM (Anybus Configuration Manager).
The ACM can be used to configurate the serial master protocols as Modbus or other master-slave protocols.
The configuration of a Modbus application is very easy: just follow the wizard of the ACM software.
Anybus®. Communicator can be easily configurated in order to consume or produce dynamic string of serial data.
With a wide range of supported devices, Anybus®. Communicator for Profibus make available the user one of the most comprehensive solutions for serial connectivity Profibus.
