SCHMIDT® CAN DeviceNet gateway
The SCHMIDT® PressControl 5000 works with the fieldbus system
CANopen. In integrated systems, often data transfer with host control
units must be carried out via DeviceNet. For this purpose, SCHMIDT
Technology offers a CAN / DeviceNet gateway. It provides a data
area, in which both sides can write or from which both sides can
read (on each side, 64 bit input and 64 bit output). Thus, an application-specific
data exchange can be realized. The gateway behaves on both sides
as a slave. The update rate of the CANopen side is 5 ms.
Different terminal modules are offered, if required, for the integration
of analog and digital signals. The connection of these modules is
achieved via CAN bus.
SCHMIDT® Interface software
The communication with co-ordinated control system is realized
via a standardized interface program with SCHMIDT® PressControl
All relevant system states as well as “failed” productions are
transferred from one control to another via a simple signal transfer.
All standard physical interfaces, such as
- I/O interface
- CAM-DeviceNet (at CANopen DeviceNet Gateway)
can be used for signal transfer with the automation environment.
