PROFINET to PROFIBUS PA Master Gateway

Access to PROFIBUS PA devices through virtual mapping as a modular PROFINET device

  • pnGate PA re-uses power conditioners in technology upgrade projects
  • No PROFIBUS DP Intermediate Segment required
  • Prepared for Integration in Standard Engineering and Plant Asset Management Tools

Key Component for Transition to State-of-the-Art Technology

  • Simple replacement of installed PROFIBUS DP/PA segment couplers
  • Re-use of existing PROFIBUS PA segments without requiring modification
  • Support of PROFINET redundancy for increased reliability

Direct Connectivity to PROFIBUS Segments

  • Acting as PROFINET Device and PROFIBUS PA Master
  • Support of up to 4 PROFIBUS PA segments

Configuration, Parameterization and Plant Asset Management Using Standard Industry Tools

  • Supports major PROFINET engineering tools such as TIA Portal, Step7 and PC WORXS
  • Included CommDTM allowing use in FDT/DTM frame applications
  • EDD-based device parametrization using Siemens Simatic PDM
