ANC-500 Profibus to Modbus RTU / Multiple Serial Protocol Gateway Converter. $575 USD List.

The Automation Networks ANC-500 PROFIBUS DP-V1 Gateway allows information to be transferred seamlessly between PROFIBUS and RS-485 networks with minimal configuration requirements. The ANC-550 provides a PROFIBUS port (DB-9 female connector) and an RS-485 port (4-wire terminal block style). The RS-485 port supports multiple protocols. PLC-style logical, arithmetic and filtering database manipulation operations allow the construction of complex autonomous data conditioning functions.

The ANC-500 is a part of the ANC Gateway Series product family. The ANC platform is designed to provide a uniform interface, configuration and application experience. This commonality reduces the user’s learning curve, reducing commissioning time while simplifying support.

The ANC-500 is a user-configurable multiprotocol Profibus DPV1 / RS-485 communications gateway, which allows seamless bridging between Profibus networks and various popular RS-485 based industrial and commercial communication networks.

RS485 Serial Protocols: The ANC-500 Gateway has the flexibility to choose Modbus Master/Slave as well as  other RS485 serial protocols which include: Modbus Sniffer, A.O. Smith AIN, A.O. Smith PDNP, BACnet MS/TP Client, BACnet MS/TP Server, TCS Basys Master, MSA Chillgard Monitor, DMX 512-Master, DMX-512 Slave, M-Bus Master, Metasys N2 Master, Metasys N2 Slave, Siemens FLN Master, Siemens FLN Slave, Sullair Master, Toshiba ASD Master, Toshiba PLC Master.
