DGW provides communication between “Ether CAT and EtherNet/IP” or “EtherCAT and the CCLink” devices. In case of using FANUC PLC(of EtherNet/IP) or MITSUBISHI PLC(of CC-Link) as host controller, you can implement I/O information transmission and reception with EtherCAT-based Robot Motion Controller via DGW. DGW allows the connection between PLC and the Robot Motion Controller by a single LAN cable, which reduces costs and increases maintenance
efficiency through simple wiring, space efficiency, and saves time developing communication programs by establishing a network between EtherCAT and EtherNet/IP or CC-Link. In addition, the error status of the communication can be easily diagnosed through the external LED, and it is easy to install in the control box by adopting the DIN rail mounting method.
