Modbus TCP/IP to GE Ethernet Global Data Gateway

5201-MNET-EGD

The ProLinx Modbus TCP/IP to GE Ethernet Global Data Gateway creates a powerful connection between Modbus TCP/IP and GE Ethernet Global Data networks.The module provides one Ethernet port

The Modbus TCP/IP protocol driver can interface many different protocols into Schneider Electric Quantum processors as well other solutions supporting the protocol. The MNET driver supports Client and Serverconnections.

The EGD modules offer one-to-one or one-to-many interconnect scenarios. Data is exchanged betweendevices and/or networks using a shared commondatabase. This common database provides the"backbone" communications for various field devices using different networks.

Especificaciones

Internal Database

The ProLinx module contains an internal database that consists of areas for application data, status information, and configuration information.

The internal database is shared between all ports on the module and is used as a conduit to pass information from a device on one network to one or more devices on another network.

Application Data Area

The data area is used to store and retrieve data by the protocol drivers and for data exchange between protocols. The database is used as a source for write commands to remote devices and holds data collected from the remote devices. Commands defined in the configuration file (stored in the configuration data area) control how the data is to be handled in the database.

Status Data Area

This area is used to store error codes, counters, and port status information for each port.

Configuration Data Area

This area contains module configuration information such as port configuration, network information, and command configuration. This configuration file is downloaded to, or uploaded from, this area.

Protocolos

EGD Protocol Specification


The EGD modules offer one-to-one or one-to-many interconnect scenarios. Data is exchanged between devices and/or networks using a shared common database and an efficient but powerful wireless protocol. This common database provides the "backbone" communications for various field devices using different networks.


Protocol Specifications

GE Fanuc Automation and GE Drive Systems developed an Ethernet Global Data, or EGD, exchange for PLC and computer data in 1998. GE Ethernet Global Data (EGD) offers versatility where a mix of control devices requires cooperation with each other. This involves sharing of information across the applications regardless of device or network type, often at high speed, and with high reliability. Bandwidth utilization is optimized by using efficient communication methods. High reliability means fewer communication failures and having the ability to detect failures upon occurrence. Particular emphasis is delivered for applications requiring periodic or frequent updates and time synchronization of devices. The protocol supports Unicast, Broadcast and Multicast group messaging. Efficiency is based on the fact each device on the network can produce these types of messages and each device determines which of these messages to consume.

The module supports the following functions specified in the EGD protocol:
