smartLink HW-DP IIoT Gateway

Industry 4.0 connectivity for new and existing PROFIBUS DP networks

  • PLC Independent access to PROFIBUS DP networks
  • Integration without interference with the operation of existing installations
  • Compatible with products of leading device manufacturers

Configuration, Parameterization and Plant Asset Management Using Standard Industry Tools

  • Independent of configuration tools
  • Centralized and time-saving parameterization of PROFIBUS and HART field devices directly from the control room using HART IP and HART over PROFIBUS
  • Access from Plant Asset Management applications for field devices configuration based on FDT / DTM and EDDL standards (acyclic master)

Ethernet Access Point to PROFIBUS DP

  • Provides 2″ channel to access the field devices
  • Acts as PROFIBUS DP master class 2
  • Support of one PROFIBUS DP segment

Key Component for Transition to State-of-the-Art Technology

  • Re-use of existing PROFIBUS segments without requiring modification
  • Access to cyclic and acyclic data via HART-IP and OPC UA

Asset Management and Parameterization of HART Devices

Configuration, Parameterization, Plant Asset Management

  • Secure, standardized access to devices
  • Parallel to and independent of the controller

Inexpensive and low-risk integration

  • Connection of a large number of HART devices without rewiring the devices
  • Use of existing infrastructure using
  • Large number of supported Remote IOs

Compatible with established standard applications

  • Uses HART-IP as standard application protocol
  • Proven and tested

Asset Management and Parameterization of PROFIBUS Devices

Configuration, Parameterization, Plant Asset Management

  • Secure, standardized access to devices
  • Parallel to and independent of the controller

Compatible with established standard applications

Direct Access to Process Data from PROFIBUS Networks

Capturing process data directly from the network

  • Live provision of all process data for further use in typical Industry 4.0 applications such as data analytics
  • Collecting data directly from the network, replacing the need to access the controller
  • No intervention in the running prosess

Secure provision of data using OPC UA

  • State-of-the-art transmission method in industrial networks
  • Also for several parallel accesses

Asset Monitoring and Diagnostics in PROFIBUS Networks Complete inventory of the entire network

  • 1&M data from all connected devices
  • Automated live queries without configuration

Secure provision of data using MQTT

  • State-of-the-art transmission method for cloud connectivity
  • Information model based on OPC UA Companion Specifications for PROFINET

Health monitoring of all connected devices

  • Diagnostic messages and status of all bus stations
  • Statistics parameters for the entire network
