Ixxat CME/PN, PROFINET - CANopen gateway
Connect SIMATIC PROFINET systems with a CANopen network
Features and Benefits
- Bi-directional data exchange for PROFINET and CANopen
- Integrated 2-port switch
- Easy configuration using the included Ixxat configuration tool
- Configuration via Ethernet or USB
The gateway operates as a PROFINET I/O device and uses slots and sub-slots for data exchange. On the CANopen side, the device acts as a CANopen NMT master with PDO and SDO support.
It has an integrated 2-port switch, thus allowing easy integration into line topologies. The connection to the CANopen bus and the power supply is made using screw terminals. Device configuration and firmware upgrades can be made via a USB 2.0 port.
The gateway configuration is accomplished easily by using the Ixxat configuration tool which is included free of charge. The configuration tool automatically generates a CDC configuration file for the CANopen network as well as a GSDML file for Profinet.
The CANopen configuration is based on EDS files. The GSDML file allows for simple gateway integration into PROFINET networks and the access of PLC applications to the gateway. At this, the gateway is represented as a single I/O device. All data on the CANopen side which is exchanged through the gateway with the PROFINET network are defined in the GSDML file as variables with variable name, data size and data direction. This unprecedented dual side approach simplifies the configuration significantly.
