Integrate without much development effort
The ready-to-install UNIGATE FC combines all components of a 2-Port Industrial Ethernet interface in one module. The enormous reduction of the development effort up to 70-80% holds a siginificant advantage in time-to-market.
Covering an area of only 47-52 mm x 56 mm, the module includes all necessary components such as microcontroller, Flash, RAM, Ethernet switch and passive components such as LEDs and Ethernet jacks. It can be connected to the microcontroller of the termial device, or can operate as stand-alone.
The module handles the entire bus or Ethernet traffic and relieves the terminal device processor of this non-trivial task. The protocol of the terminal device will be implemented with a script. The free of cost PC-tool 'Protocol Developer' generates the script and adapts it perfectly to the final product and the requirements of the bus. Changes to the firmware of the terminal are not necessary.
