Amplicon announce the release of a new range of fieldbus gateways, the Moxa MGate 4101-MB-PBS
series. These innovative converters are used for effortlessly connecting Modbus devices to any PROFIBUS network (e.g. Siemens S400 and S300 PLC networks).
Numerous hours of data-collection and manual address mapping can be eliminated with the MGate 4101’s QuickLink feature, which automatically configures the gateway within minutes. All models are industrial-grade with a metal housing, DIN-Rail mounting and offer internal optical isolation (MGate 4101I-MB-PBS only) for serial signals to meet industrial application demands.
QuickLink technology eliminates the guesswork of device parameter configuration using two unique software features called AutoLearning and AutoMapping. When the MGate 4101-MB-PBS is connected to an existing master PLC communicating and a Modbus slave device, it can automatically detect the command parameters and map them into a format usable by the PROFIBUS master (PLC).
Industrial applications require specific features for fieldbus gateways; the MGate 4101-MB-PBS includes dual power inputs, relay output warning, a wide operating temperature range and isolated inputs; all of which benefit critical industrial applications.
