The KUNBUS-GW gateways allow different industrial networks to be interconnected quickly and inexpensively.
The KUNBUS-GW gateways consist of two modules each, which contain the respective protocol and are fitted with a common interface for the data exchange. Each module is integrated into the respective network as a slave. The data is exchanged via a jumper that connects both modules.
The compact plastic housing of the modules have IP20 protection class and are installed next to each other on a DIN rail (EN50022). The modules are supplied with an operating voltage of 24 Volt whereby the power consumption is less than 3 Watt.
The modular design enables the KUNBUS-GW gateway to be used highly flexibly. Whereas conventional gateways have to be replaced completely in the event of a technical malfunction, with the KUNBUS-GW gateways it is sufficient to replace the defective module only.
Apart from the resultant cost benefit from the module design, this approach offers another key benefit: The decision for or against a certain network only has to be made just before delivery. Consequently, it is possible to react better to any special and recent changes in requirements which have occurred.
Following gateway modules are available:
- PROFINET IRT
- Sercos III
- Modbus TCP
- Modbus RTU
