epGate PB

Part No.: MPST-epGate-PB
Ethernet/IP to PROFIBUS Gateway with DP/PA Master Functionality


Ethernet/IP to PROFIBUS DP/PA Master Gateway

Direct Integration of PROFIBUS DP and PA Segments into Ethernet/IP Control Systems

With epGate PB it is possible to integrate up to 2 PROFIBUS PA segments and 1 PROFIBUS DP segment into Ethernet/IP systems. With epGate PB 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.


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

  • Simple replacement of installed PROFIBUS DP/PA segment coupler
  • Re-use of existing PROFIBUS segments without requiring modification
  • Support of common control systems e.g. Emerson DetlaV or Rockwell Control Logix
  • Support of DLR for redundant communication in the ring with EtherNet/IP

Direct Connectivity to PROFIBUS Segments

  • Single access point to PROFIBUS DP and PROFIBUS PA segments from EtherNet/IP networks
  • Acting as EtherNet/IP device (adapter), PROFIBUS PA and PROFIBUS DP Master
  • Support of one PROFIBUS DP segment and up to two PROFIBUS PA segments

Configuration, Parameterization and Plant Asset Management Using Standard Industry Tools

  • Supports major EtherNet/IP engineering tools such as Studio 5000 and AMS Device Manager
  • Included CommDTM allowing use in FDT/DTM frame applications
  • EDD-based device parametrization using Siemens Simatic PDM
