The VBG-PB-K20-DMD-EV1 is a PROFIBUS gateway with a double master according to AS-Interface specification 3.0.
The design of the K20 in stainless steel with IP20 is particularly suited for use in switching cabinets for snap on mounting on the 35 mm mounting rail.
The gateway in accordance with the AS-Interface specification V 3.0 is used to connect AS-Interface systems to a higher-level net. It acts as a master for the AS-Interface segment and as a slave for the higher-level net. During cyclic data exchange, the digital data of an AS-Interface segment is transferred.
The address allocation and acceptance of the target configuration can be achieved via the keys. 7 LEDs fitted to the front panel indicate the actual state of the AS-Interface branch.
With the graphical display, the commissioning of the AS-Interface circuits and testing of the connected peripherals can take place completely separately from the commissioning of the higher-level network and the programming. With the 4 switches, all functions can be controlled and visualized on the display.
The port provides a way of exporting data relating to the gateway, network and operation directly from the gateway for extended local diagnosis purposes.
Via the RJ-45 Ethernet diagnostic interface, up to 31 devices can establish a secure cross-communication.
The device has a card slot for a memory card for the storage of configuration data.
The redundant power supply guarantees that the double master remains in function and is diagnosticable, when a failure of a power supply unit in one of the two AS-interfaces circles occures. Also communication with the superior field bus is not disturbed by the failure of a power supply.
Optionally the gateway is also available with PLC functionality. Therefor you can order a code key VAZ-CTR3 additionally. The programming language is ANSI-C. A compiler is available as plug-in for ECLIPSE environment.
