RevPi Gates – PROFIBUS

by Kunbus GmbH

Integrate Revolution Pi into an industrial network

It is not easy to integrate a device into an industrial network. Special protocols are often used for data transmission, such as Profinet or Profibus. However, when using these gateways integrating Revolution Pi into an industrial network is no problem.

Like all Revolution Pi expansion modules, the gateways are also connected to the base module RevPi Core via the overhead Pi Bridge connector. Thus, up to two gateway modules can be used per system.

The cyclic data exchange between gateway and the central process image of the RevPi Core 3 takes place every 5 ms, regardless of the bus protocol and system configuration.

Due to the required processing power, we recommend the use of gateways exclusively in conjunction with the Quad-Core equipped RevPi Core 3.

  • EtherNet/IP gateway module is solely compatible with the ethernet based fieldbus protocol EtherNet/IP. Please don't mistake EtherNet/IP protocol with TCP/IP protocol!
  • 24V power supply is mandatory. Gateways don`t work with 12V!
