High plant availability and simplified Profibus integration

By Chemical Engineering |

This company just released version 1.20 of its Modbus-to-Profibus gateways (photo), adding redundancy for critical process-control applications, and adding XML import for simplified integration into Schneider Electric engineering systems. The Modbus-to-Profibus Gateways mbGate PA, mbGate PB and mbGate DP enable the direct integration of Profibus PA and DP segments into Modbus/TCP systems. They act as Modbus server and Profibus master and connect up to four Profibus PA segments, as well as one DP segment with Modbus TCP. Version 1.20 now supports the operation of two redundant gateways in combination with two redundant Modbus controllers. In this way, system availability is ensured even in the event of a connection failure. — Softing Industrial Automation GmbH, Haar, Germany
