BridgeWay Ethernet to DeviceNet Gateway

The BridgeWay™ Ethernet to DeviceNet™ Gateway seamlessly connects EtherNet/IP™ Scanners, and Modbus/TCP Master PLCs and HMIs to a DeviceNet Network. It provides full DeviceNet Master (or Slave) functionality and can connect to 63 DeviceNet slave devices.

In addition to industrial automation protocols, our gateways support IT protocols such as SMTP, FTP and HTTP. Remotely view statuses, data, email and transfer files with the internal web server.

Easily connect information or control level networks to device level networks:

  • For remote programming or configuration on your DeviceNet networks (bridge functionality)
  • With a DCS, PLC or HMI to control or perform data collection on a DeviceNet network via EtherNet/IP or Modbus/TCP (DeviceNet Master or Slave functionality)

FAQs

What is included with a BW4030 gateway?

Each BW4030 device comes equipped with:

  • One 3-Pin Phoenix connector for power
  • One 5-Pin Phoenix connector for DeviceNet
  • One free license of our configuration tool: BWConfig 2.0
  • User manual

What protocols are supported?

The BridgeWay 4030 supports EtherNet/IP Adapter and/or Modbus TCP* Slave to DeviceNet Master or Slave.

Note: The BW4030 can also connect to SIEMENS Controllers using Modbus TCP.

What is required, but NOT included?

  • A DeviceNet Scanlist configuration tool such as RSNetWorx for DeviceNet, HMS’ NetTool-DN-D or ACM (ACM is provided separately for free upon request with a BW4030 purchase)
  • A properly-wired and terminated DeviceNet network with properly-configured DeviceNet Slave and/or Master devices
  • A properly-wired and segmented Ethernet network
  • A properly-configured EtherNet/IP Scanner and/or Modbus TCP Master device
  • A PC or laptop to run the BWConfig 2.0 configuration tool and the selected DeviceNet Master Scanlist configuration tool
  • A Micro USB to USB cable to connect your computer to the BW4030 for BWConfig 2.0
  • 24 VDC power
  • DeviceNet network power (if not the same power supply)

Can I purchase a DeviceNet Scanlist Configuration tool through Pyramid Solutions?

Yes, Pyramid Solutions can provide HMS’ ACM tool for free but, only with the purchase of a BW4030 gateway. Otherwise, you will need to contact your Rockwell Automation distributor and purchase RSNetworx for DeviceNet.
