MasterCan Gateway CAN MK-FB for PLC industrial fieldbus systems
MasterCan CAN MK-FB module connected to the CAN Bus provides the functions of a fieldbus gateway (PLC) for weighing indicators that do not have a PLC fieldbus option.
The gateway connected to a fieldbus (PROFIBUS-DP, DEVICENET, ETHERNET MODBUS/TCP, …) is a slave node which can send or read data via a master in the network.
As a result, data exchange with other slaves can be easily established from a PLC or a computer.
All data exchanged are either in Big-Endian format (MOTOROLA) or in Little-Endian format (INTEL-based processor).
Also, the choice of format can be configured on the weighing indicator, refer to the indicator’s software manual.
This MasterCan Gateway has :
- A slot for Anybus CompactCOM card
- 1 x Weighing CAN link for controlling the gateway module
- 1 x RS485 serial port for connection of a weight repeater (or control of the gateway by a weight indicator without CAN bus)
Power by 12 Volts DC (or 24 Volts DC) for this gateway.
Power consumption of the gateway: 1.2 Watts / 6 Watts (max. at 12 Volts)
Also, the configuration of the MasterCan Gateway CAN-MK-FB is realized with the weighing indicator connected to this module.
A set of LEDs on the front panel shows the operating status of this CAN BUS module without additional equipment.
Fieldbus compatible with the MasterCan Gateway – BUS CAN-MK-FB:
Ethernet / IP
Weighing indicators compatible with this gateway, for instance :
- Logic 200
- Ide 500-I
