UNIGATE® CL-Ethernet TCP/IP
Protocol Converter / Gateway from serial interface to Ethernet TCP/IP
The Deutschmann UNIGATE® Gateway connects devices, such as automation components via their serial interface (RS232, RS485, RS422, SSI) with Ethernet TCP/IP networks. With it the UNIGATE® takes over the task of a Protocol Converter and converts the different interfaces. Marketable standard protocols, such as Modbus ASCII, Modbus RTU (Master or Slave), RK 3964, RK 3964R, Universal 232, Transparent mode and many more can be set by means of a simple configuration via the PC-tool WINGATE. The UNIGATE® CL Ethernet TCP/IP is exceptionally flexible and powerful because of its Script ability and it is suitable for requirements that go beyond the standard protocols or for the conversion of your own protocols. This Script is generated with the free PC-tool Protocol Developer and it is optimally adapted to the final product and requirements of the Ethernet TCP/IP-Master. No changes have to be made in the final product's firmware.
Deutschmann UNIGATE® Ethernet is ideal for the use with terminal-units that do not have their own Ethernet-interface. The standard DIN-rail version features the protection type IP24.
Scope of functions
The Deutschmann UNIGATE® Gateway uses a data capacity of 1024 Byte and supports the speeds 10 and 100. The complete performance range of a Ethernet is supported by UNIGATE®. For the Ethernet -connection a RJ45- connector is provided, the connection of the serial side is made through screw-plug-connector. The Ethernet-ID can set be the Script. A large number of diagnosis LEDs signal the state of the device on the Ethernet-side as well as on the serial side.
The special advantage of the UNIGATE® CL-series is the Script-ability. Thus any changes in the firmware of the terminal-unit are not necessary. Due to the Script the user has all liberties and possibility, from a simple transparent data transfer over the generation of complex protocols up to editing data.
With Deutschmann UNIGATE® CL-modules you bring existing components (also older devices) into modern networks. As device manufacturer you save the development of the interface based on the corresponding Fieldbus or Ethernet. Due to the continuity of the Deutschmann UNIGATE® CL-series Scripts that have been generated once can be used practically without changes for other types of the UNIGATE® CL-series based on other Fieldbuses and Ethernet. The firmware adaptation of your own terminal-units becomes unnecessary.
Hotline and Support
A team of qualified specialists will assist you with the selection of the device, start-up, configuration and the generation of the Script. This offer is completed by trainings to the different subject areas.
