The intelligent gateway from HMS Industrial Networks connects SAE J1939 networks to Siemens PLC systems, enabling a Profibus-DP Master to read and write J1939 network data for control and monitoring tasks. The gateway accomplishes this by operating simultaneously as a Profibus-DP Slave on a Profibus network and as a CAN node on a J1939 network. HMS provides a free Windows-based configuration tool that allows the user to map J1939 parameter data into the module's input and output tables, accessible by the Profibus Master over the Profibus-DP network. With is rugged industrial design the device is suited for use across a wide variety of applications and industries.
On the Profibus side the gateway supports Profibus-DP Slave functionality with cyclic I/O data transmission and it can handle up to 244 bytes Input and 244 bytes of Output data. On the J1939 side the gateway supports up to 35 incoming J1939 transport protocol sessions and can monitor up to 120 different PGNs in the Input data point configuration and transmit up to 100 different PGNs in the Output data point configuration.
