The VBG-PB-K30-DMD-S16-EV is a PROFIBUS gateway with a safety monitor and a double master according to AS-Interface specification 3.0.
The gateway is used to connect AS-Interface systems to a higher-level PROFIBUS. It acts as a master for the AS-Interface segment and as a slave for the PROFIBUS. During cyclic and acyclic data exchange, the AS-Interface functions are provided via PROFIBUS - DP V1. During cyclic data exchange the binary data of an AS-Interface segment is transferred. Analog values as well as the complete command set of the new AS-Interface specification are transferred via PROFIBUS using a command interface.
The gateway has four inputs and four outputs. The four inputs are used either for extended EDM device monitoring or as start inputs. Two sets of two outputs act as relay outputs and switch output circuits 1 and 2 and, as semiconductor outputs, output circuits 3 and 4. The K30 model is particularly suitable for installation in a control cabinet.
Configuration of the device can be performed using switches. Seven LED located on the front panel indicate the current status of the AS-Interface segment. One LED shows the power supply via AUX. A further eight LEDs indicate the status of the inputs and outputs.
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.
An RJ-45 Ethernet 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 integrated data decoupling allows to operate 2 AS-Interface circuits with just a standard power supply.
The device has a card slot for a memory card for the storage of configuration data.
