The ProLinx Modbus Master/Slave to DF1 Master/Slave Gateway creates a powerful connection between Modbus Master/Slave and DF1 Master/Slave networks and devices. This stand-alone DIN-rail mounted protocol gateway provides four serial ports, each individually configurable as a Modbus or DF1 Master or Slave. The Modbus protocol driver supports Master and Slave implementations of the protocol. All Modbus serial ports are individually configurable, providing a very powerful and flexible host or device interface solution. The DEM protocol driver is designed to provide a tightly integrated communications interface between other protocols of the ProLinx platform and the Honeywell DE instruments. Compatible DE devices include a large array of field devices including pressure, temperature, metering, and many other instruments.

Modbus Master/Slave to DF1 Master/Slave
  • This module is fully configurable, allowing any of its four serial ports to be configured as either a Master or Slave utilizing either the DF1 or Modbus Protocols. This provides a great deal of application flexibility as the module can be used as a data concentrator (when configuring all four ports for the same protocol) or the module database can be shared between the DF1 and Modbus networks to allow the module to work as a bridge between the two different protocols. Applications for the module are found in most industries, especially the Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food Processing.
Application Data Area
  • The data area is used to store and retrieve data by the protocol drivers and for data exchange between protocols. The database is used as a source for write commands to remote devices and holds data collected from the remote devices. Commands defined in the configuration file (stored in the configuration data area) control how the data is to be handled in the database.
Internal Database
  • The internal database is shared between all ports on the module and is used as a conduit to pass information from a device on one network to one or more devices on another network.
  • The ProLinx module contains an internal database that consists of areas for application data, status information, and configuration information.
Configuration Data Area
  • This area contains module configuration information such as port configuration, network information, and command configuration. This configuration file is downloaded to, or uploaded from, this area.
Status Data Area
  • This area is used to store error codes, counters, and port status information for each port.
