MODBUS TCP SERVER to PROFIBUS PA Master Gateway

Simple connection of PROFIBUS PA Slave devices to Modbus control systems via internal I/O mapping

With mbGate PA it is possible to integrate up to 4 PROFIBUS PA segments into Modbus TCP control systems. It acts as Modbus TCP Server and PROFIBUS PA Master. With our gateways the engineering costs can be reduced since it re-uses existing power conditioners in technology upgrade projects. It enables configuration, parameterization and plant asset management using standard industry tools.
