Features of the gateway are:
|Link / Connections||Parallel MPI communication up to 32 PLC devices via 16 TCP/IP connections|
|Protocols||RFC 1006 protocol for the connection of visualisation systems|
|Communication ports||1 x Ethernet RJ45 port with status LED
1 x DB9 serial port for the MPI connection
|Additional features||Automatic detection baudrate
PG passerby connection
Direct 24V supply on the connector or external
The PROFIBUS/MPI Ethernet gateway is made in a form factor that adapts to the PG connection of PLC Siemens S7-300 and S7-400.
Together with the SW supplied driver achieves an Ethernet interface for the connection with programming PC (works with STEP 7).
In this case the power provided to the gateway comes from the PLC and the connection to the PROFIBUS network is performed on the PG connector of the gateway.
When the PROFIBUS/MPI Ethernet gateway is connected directly to a peripheral unit, 24V power supply must be provided from outside.
Using latest firmware version, the device provides a web page that allows diagnostics of all nodes connected to the PROFIBUS and MPI network remotely
