Ethernet/IP to PROFIBUS DP Master Gateway Simple connection of PROFIBUS DP Slave Devices to Ethernet/IP Control Systems via Internal I/O Mapping With epGate DP it is possible to integrate one PROFIBUS DP segment into Ethernet/IP control systems. With epGate DP the engineering costs can be reduced since it re-uses existing PROFIBUS DP segment without the requiring modification. It enables configuration, parameterization and plant asset management using standard industry tools. 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 Direct Connectivity to PROFIBUS Segments • Single access point to PROFIBUS DP segment from EtherNet/IP networks • Acting as EtherNet/IP device (adapter) and PROFIBUS DP master • Support of one PROFIBUS DP segment Key Component for Transition to State-of-the-Art Technology • 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 Simple Integration Through Add-On Instructions • Data access of PLC program to PROFIBUS devices without requiring detailed PROFIBUS knowledge • Mapping between the two protocols generated by provided tools • Use of Add-On Instructions (AOI) containing detailed PROFIBUS data type definitions • Transparent communication overcoming protocol differences • Optimized for usage with Allen Bradley controllers
