SmartWire-DT goes POWERLINK thanks to Hilscher's new gateway

January 2014

The new SmartWire-DT to POWERLINK Gateway EU5C-SWD-POWERLINK is the second product Hilscher has released based on the strategic partnership with Eaton.

The gateway enables Eaton's intelligent control panel communication system SmartWire-DT to be integrated into POWERLINK networks. As a single POWERLINK node, the data from the underlying SmartWire nodes is transparently mapped with its transmit and receive process data object

The gateway is commissioned using Eaton's standard SmartWire configuration software SWD-Assist. An XDD file export function generates the corresponding device description file for the POWERLINK master and completes the configuration.
