TWINSBURG, OH – Pepperl+Fuchs’ announces that their AS-Interface DeviceNet Gateways have passed Compound Version 18 of the ODVA conformance test.

Single channel and dual channel gateways provide strong diagnostic capabilities while supporting polled I/O and Change of State (COS) operations. Additional features include detected slave display, visual fault diagnostics, support for analog I/O, and the ability to network safety devices such as e-stops and light curtains up to Category 4.

AS-Interface DeviceNet Gateways are the core of the wiring system, and connect AS-Interface to upper level controllers. They handle the complete data transfer, cyclically polling all participants connected to the wiring system. The gateway can be placed anywhere in the AS-Interface segment. Single channel gateways can handle 248 inputs and 186 outputs over 62 addressable I/O modules. Dual channel gateway offers even more I/O capabilities, with 496 inputs and 372 outputs.

Pepperl+Fuchs’ AS-Interface Gateways are also available for connectivity to PROFIBUS-DP and ModBus bus systems.
