VPGate PROFINET to Serial

110 00012AVPGate PROFINET to serial is a PROFINET gateway that enables the exchange of real-time data between a PROFINET IO network and any equipment with a serial link. Data can easily be visualized by the user via an integrated webpage. In addition to relevant diagnostic alarms, this ensures the optimal integration of equipment in your network.


The VPGate allows for effective diagnosis via the integrated webpage. Here the user can access maintenance information. The gateway has an integrated switch in addition to diagnostic LEDs on the front panel.

The VPGate can easily be replaced during maintenance as no prior configuration is needed and all data is stored in the PROFINET IO.


This product is an economically attractive solution to enable integration in an existing network and is certified by PROFIBUS International.
