Hilscher expanded its gateway product range to the Converter NT 151-RE-RE, The I / O data between any two industrial Ethernet networks converts. Overall 34 different loadable protocol combinations for systems Profinet, EtherCAT, Ethernet / IP, Powerlink and Sercos slave in support to slave or slave to master combination.
Two network controller in the device separate the two networks physically and act independently from the logs. A common memory is used for data transfer of the cyclic I / O data, in this case, any I / O data mapping is feasible. is at the Geräteober- and bottom in each case a dual Ethernet jack with switch function, which enables the realization of star, ring and also line network topologies for each network side.
The device is configured via a mini-USB jack using the Windows software Sycon.net. Here over both the various combinations of protocols as well as the parameters for the primary and secondary network load. Devices that are enabled for master function can mint as a secondary protocol also a full-fledged master.
The newly released software stage envisages the transfer of purely cyclical data with a turnaround time of 5 ms between the two networks. An already planned software upgrade will also support the non-cyclic data transfer between the protocols.
