Intelligent Ethernet/PROFIBUS gateway
Parallel access to PROFIBUS networks, monitoring of PROFIBUS and HART device status
Fieldgate SFG500 is a system component that provides an independent access route to a PROFIBUS network. It may be used in a variety of applications that are supported by specific operating modes.
Fieldgate SFG500 may be used in a variety of applications that are supported by specific operating modes. The operating modes are determined by the use of an optional memory card (Fieldgate Module SFM500).
PROFIBUS listener and Master Class 2: automatically integrates itself into a PROFIBUS network and finds all connected devices
HART support via PROFIBUS: HART device support and device diagnostics
PROFIBUS observer: monitors network traffic and device...
Without a memory card, Fieldgate SFG500 operates as a plant access point. In this case, it acts as an Ethernet gateway with adaptive PROFIBUS Master Class 2 capabilities to support FDT-based plant asset management host applications, e.g. FieldCare.
