aXconverter

Universal protocol converter for Ethernet and Profibus DP


The aXconverter is an intelligent Profibus Slave that provides a wide variety of serial protocols. Depending on applications these protocols are provided to Ethernet or Profibus Network.


Provides following serial interfaces:


  • RS232 with RTS/CTS and DTR/DSR
  • RS422/RS485
  • USB
  • 2x Ethernet
following Conversions can be used (please have a look at the necessary extension modules)

(*1) MBus-Extension-Modul is needed.
(*2) LWL-Extension-Modul is needed.
(*3) Profibus-Extension-Modul is needed.
(*4) Profibus + IO-Extension-Modul is needed.
(*5) TTY-Extension-Modul is needed.
(*6) CAN-Extension-Modul is needed.


The aXconverter will have an internal bus logger, which can be used as a protocol debugger.
Thus it is possible to watch the entire serial data flow over an Ehternet Link.
Via a firmware module various software components can be quickly replaced or updated.
All necessary configuration and addressing mechanisms can be configured via rotary switches or DIP switches.
