UNIGATE® CM CAN/CANopen to all Fieldbuses and Industrial Ethernet

  • Easy installation
  • Norm compliant
  • Ready-to-use
  • Easy configuration
  • Designed & manufactured in Germany

Easily configurable, ready-to-use CAN Gateway

UNIGATE CM Gateways connect CAN/CANopen-Participants to all Fieldbus- and Industrial Ethernet systems that are supported by Deutschmann.

With the Deutschmann developed Software WINGATE, the reliable components can be quickly and easily configured and immediately be put into operation. The compact IP20 module with dimensions of 23 mm x 115 mm x 100 mm can be easily mounted on the DIN rail.

Besides RS232, RS485 and RS422 standard interfaces, the UNIGATE CM CANopen Gateway has an additional CAN/CANopen interface with Mini-Master functionality. Hence, the gateways can connect both CANopen networks and individual CANopen devices into higher-level networks. Adaptation of the device-firmware is not necessary. After configuration of the parameters, the gateway is immediately ready for communication. The adjustable values are context-sensitive displayed, dependent on the selected function parameters.
Furthermore, for more complex tasks the module can be very flexibly programmed with the Deutschmann developed script language and the free of cost Software Tool 'Protocol Developer'.

Deutschmann optionally supplies the product pre-configured to customer specification, in different housing colors and with or without the customer logo.
