About VPGate Ethernet/IP to Modbus serial

The VP GATE for EtherNet/IP provides a quick and cost effective connection of any Modbus device to a EtherNet/IP fieldbus. It is well suited for simple network extensions or the integration of legacy devices such as in the machine tool industry. The VP GATE gateway can act as an Ethernet/IP adapter on one side, and a Serial Modbus Master or Slave on the other side. The gateway is integrated into the EtherNet/IP scanner without line of code. All parameters are set in a very user friendly way, via the usual EtherNet/IP configuration tool. All the parameters are sent to the gateway automatically by the EtherNet/IP scanner at each network initialisation, permitting the replacement of the gateway without any configuration.
