The GWC unit has been developed to guarantee the three functions of programmable logic controller (PLC), motion controller and communication converter (gateway). The programmable logic controller and motion controller functions allow the user to control a process via fieldbus, the serial interface and the inputs/outputs, according to a program defined by the user. The communication converter function allows for the interchange of data between the different fieldbuses: CANbus (CANopen master/slave), DeviceNet (slave), Profibus (Profibus-DP slave) and Serial (Modbus master/slave). The coexistence of the three functions in a single unit, simplifies the automation of a wide range of industrial applications in a simple manner and with a significant economic advantage.
