In field applications based on project needs different systems must be installed and used. Few exampels are Energy SCADA systems, Fire-Alarm system, energy management systems, manfufacturing automation systems etc. Those means there are many different Protocols integrated in the field. Hilscher Protocol converters helsp stable and continuous communciation between different protocols used in different systems on in same system. Hilscher protocol converters transfer and convert data between two identical or two different industrial automation networks. The converters provide cost-effective and easy-to-deploy solutions for any type of data conversion, whether the application is simple serial bus, classic Fieldbus, Ethernet, Real-Time Ethernet or a mix of these protocols. Hilscher converters are configured with SYCON.net, a Windows-based tool providing network set up ad diagnostic information. LED indicators provide status information for rapid on-site diagnostics. The protocol conversions are pre-programmed and loaded as firmware into the device on demand. Conversions needing the sampe physical network interface can be managed by a single device variant. This means that a single device can serve, for example, as a PROFIBUS Slave or a PROFIBUS aster through a simpel firmware change. SOme of supported protocols are: CANopen, DeviceNet, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU, POWERLINK, PROFIBUS, PROFINET, SERCOS etc.
