Softing Industrial – mbGate PB

MODBUS TCP SERVER to PROFIBUS PA/DP Master Gateway

Simple connection of PROFIBUS Slave Devices to Modbus Control Systems via Internal I/O Mapping

With mbGate PB it is possible to integrate up to 2 PROFIBUS PA segments and 1 PROFIBUS DP segment into Modbus TCP control systems. It acts as Modbus TCP Server and PROFIBUS Master. With our gateway the engineering costs can be reduced since it re-uses existing power conditioners in technology upgrade projects. It enables configuration, parameterization and plant asset management using standard industry tools.
