mbGate DP

Part No.: MPST-mbGate-DP
Modbus TCP to PROFIBUS With DP Master Functionality


Modbus TCP server to PROFIBUS DP Master

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

With mbGate DP it is possible to integrate one PROFIBUS DP segment into Modbus TCP control systems. It acts as Modbus TCP Server and PROFIBUS DP Master. With our gateways the engineering costs can be reduced since it re-uses existing PROFIBUS DP segment without the requiring modification. It enables simple configuration, parameterization and plant asset management using standard industry tools and is compatible with products of leading PLC Manufacturers.
