PROCENTEC VPGate PROFIBUS to Serial gateway

Gateway/converter between PROFIBUS DP and serial/MODBUS
Produktnummer: 110-00011A

The VPGate PROFIBUS DP to serial is a gateway/converter between PROFIBUS DP and serial/MODBUS. It enables a fast connection of any serial/MODBUS device to a PROFIBUS system at a low cost. It is designed for quick and easy integration. No additional software is needed as it can be easily configured via any PROFIBUS configuration management tool.

About VPGate PROFIBUS DP to serial

The VPGate is built into the system and no knowledge of coding is needed for configuration. The PROFIBUS configuration tool is easy to use by personnel.
On the PROFIBUS side it is a DP slave, and on the serial/MODBUS side master or slave. The parameters and behavior are configured simply through the GSD file in the configuration tool of the PROFIBUS master.

The VPGate is an economically attractive solution to enable integration in an existing network.
