Protocol developer functionality

Published:  24 February, 2014

The ready-to-install UNIGATE bus nodes and gateways from DEUTSCHMANN AUTOMATION facilitate the connection of devices or networks into infrastructures based on different protocols, this is reported to relieve automation manufacturers from developing fieldbus interfaces themselves.

As a unique feature of the UNIGATE product range, a script controls the implementation the terminal device protocols. By means of the free-of-charge Protocol Developer tool, users can generate the script without special programming skills or fieldbus knowledge. Deutschmann says it has now enhanced the functionality of Protocol Developer and script and made the software even more user-friendly. The Protocol Developer now features data-type-independent algorithms and a preprocessor, which enables macro definitions, conditional compilation, and operations with constants. The introduction of Modbus RTU and Modbus ASCII as universal protocols increases the script’s versatility.
