Anybus PROFINET to .NET gateway - Anybus« - HMS

The Anybus PROFINET to .NET gateway enables factory-floor data from PROFINET to be presented to .NET applications.

As a .NET programmer, you can get data directly from a PLC system and use this data in applications for statistics, analysis or maintenance. The gateway can be used with a wide range of use cases, from simple transfer of KPI values, advanced messages with structured data types, or ultra-fast transfer of I/O data for “big data.”

The KPI mode is designed for sending a limited set of parameters (typically KPI values) from the PLC to the .NET/C# environment. Everything is pre-configured and with a minimum of steps it is possible to start receiving KPI data values from the PLC.
The Structured Data Event Mode, the structured data types (such as recipes) are sent to and from the PLC and presented to the C# programmer as events or post methods. The programmers agree on a list of parameters (names, direction and datatypes) and the system automatically generates a high level C# interface and PLC configuration files.
The information exchange between the Operational Technlogy (OT) side and the Information Technology (IT) side is defined in a spreadsheet template.
The HMS code generator will then automatically create a customized high level C# API (events and Post methods) that is easy to integrate directly into your .NET application. At the same time, a customized GSDML file is created that simplifies the integration in the PLC. 

Features
  • Power 24Vdc;
  • Certifications: CE, UL, cUL, ATEX and Haz.Loc;
  • Size:  110 mm x 35 mm x 101 mm;
  • Dual Port switched Ethernet allows daisy chaining on all Ethernet ports;
  • Robust design for optimized cabling, DIN-rail or wall mount options. 

Advantages
  • System for connecting one or multiple PLCs to IT/software systems;
  • Send and receive data from each side;
  • PLC programmer is in full control – PLC access via fieldbus or Ethernet slave interface;
  • IT style interface: customized names, receive events and post structured data via C# / .NET interface;
  • Automated configuration – system generates fully customized C# API and PLC configuration (GSDML etc), with names and data types according to parameter list agreed between software programmer and PLC programmer;
  • Configuration is stored in C# program on customer side. In the event of a replaced gateway hardware, the system will automatically restore the configuration onto the new hardware.
