    The VPGate PROFIBUS DP to Serial Gateway easily connects any serial Modbus device to a PROFIBUS installation. No additional configuration tool is required. Simply provision this PROFIBUS Gateway via any existing PROFIBUS configuration management tool (e.g. Siemens STEP 7). The PROFIBUS installation views the gateway as a slave device and the gateway acts as a master or slave to the Modbus serial device.

    Flexibility and ease of use are designed into the VPGate. Both RS232 and RS485 serial interfaces are supported as well as optional digital I/O and analog inputs. The PROFIBUS slave address of the gateway can be setup via a set of rotary switches. Enhanced diagnostic capabilities are provided via PROFIBUS and RS232 diagnostic connections.

    • No additional configuration tool required
    • Supports RS232 or RS485 serial interface
    • PROFIBUS baud rate automatic detection
    • Enhanced diagnostic on PROFIBUS and dedicated RS232 link
    • Intelligent Modbus master/slave mode optimizes PROFIBUS bandwidth usage
    • Up to 20 Modbus slaves
    • Modbus RTU or ASCII supported
    • Detailed set of status LEDs
    • Built-in RS485 bus termination resistor
    • Transparent mode allows for immediate data exchange between PROFIBUS and serial link
    • PROFIBUS GSD (General Station Description) file supplied and customizable
