The BridgeWay™ platform can be configured to support a wide range of applications, from a low-end serial to CAN interface, to high-end standalone communication gateways supporting multiple protocols. Designed as a modular platform with configurable hardware and software, BridgeWay’s products can be adapted to meet your business needs.
Ethernet to DeviceNet
The BridgeWay Ethernet to DeviceNet™ Gateway (AB7603) seamlessly connects EtherNet/IP™ Scanners, and Modbus/TCP Master PLCs and HMIs to a DeviceNet Network. The AB7603 provides full DeviceNet Master (or Slave) functionality and can connect to 63 DeviceNet slave devices.
PROFIBUS to DeviceNet
The BridgeWay PROFIBUS to DeviceNet Gateway (AB7605) provides connectivity between a PROFIBUS-DP network and a DeviceNet network. This compact, DIN rail-mountable device solves a mission-critical problem by connecting existing or newly installed DeviceNet networks to PROFIBUS DP-Master PLCs, Scanners, HMIs or DCSs.
Ethernet to J1939
The BridgeWay Ethernet to J1939 Gateway (AB7645) supports EtherNet/IP and Modbus/TCP protocols over Ethernet. The AB7645 operates as an EtherNet/IP Adapter Class (Server) device, allowing an EtherNet/IP Scanner (Client) to read and write J1939 network PGN data.
PROFIBUS to J1939
The BridgeWay PROFIBUS to J1939 Gateway (AB7614) enables a PROFIBUS-DP Master to read and write J1939 network data. The AB7614 operates simultaneously as a PROFIBUS-DP Slave node on a PROFIBUS network, and a CAN node on a J1939 network.
J1939 to Modbus Interface
The BridgeWay J1939 to Modbus Interface Gateway (AB7606) provides connectivity between a Modbus RTU (RS485 serial 2 wire) network and a J1939 (CAN) network. The AB7606 operates as a Modbus RTU Slave device, allowing a Modbus RTU Master to read and write J1939 PGN data.
