The DIN rail gateways from the "Unigate CL"Series from Deutschmann Automation now have a software interface for the" AutoSPy "diagnostic tool. This can access the debug interface of the Unigate CL on the script, which implements the protocol of the terminal in the gateways. With the analysis software, all incoming and outgoing signals can be recorded in real time, just like a tachograph. Different diagram functions allow the comfortable evaluation of the recordings and the clear representation of variables.Long-term log files and integrated filter functions can be used to identify even the shortest or extremely rare malfunctions.
The protocol converters from the Unigate CL family are available for all common fieldbuses and Industrial Ethernet systems. They use the full transfer rate of the respective bus and support all speeds. By using these devices manufacturers of automation devices save a large part of the development effort in adapting to different protocols. With the script, for the simple production of which the manufacturer provides the free "Protocol Developer", even complex protocols can be simulated and customer-specific commands integrated, without the need for special programming knowledge or specialist knowledge of fieldbuses and Ethernet systems.
