Gateways are used for transferring and converting data between 2 industrial automation networks of the same or different type. They offer a simple and cost-effective solution for any type of data conversion, whether used with fieldbus, Ethernet or Real-Time Ethernet systems or a combination thereof. This enables the efficient integration of devices and plant components into existing structures and the connection of systems and network components.

Our wide range of gateways offers a suitable solution for every application, from cost-optimized devices for simple and dedicated implementation to flexible high-end devices for demanding and individual conversion tasks.

Our gateways are available in 2 different versions. The netHOST, netTAP 50, netTAP 100, netTAP 151 and netSWITCH variants are ideal for installation in control cabinets or distributor boxes. They can be mounted on a standard 35 mm DIN rail according to IEC 60715 and are protected to IP20 requirements. Our netLink devices, on the other hand, are connectors designed for direct mounting, making them both very easy to implement and cost-effective.

LAN Gateways

The netHOST LAN gateway is used to control your fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet systems through the conventional Ethernet.

Entry Level Gateways

The netTAP 50 entry-level gateway is a cost-optimized gateway for simple conversions in your industrial automation networks.

Real-Time Ethernet Gateways

The gateway for your Real-Time Ethernet networks! With over 25 combinations, netTAP151 offers the appropriate conversion for each of your systems.

Real-Time Ethernet Switches

netSWITCH enables you to connect conventional Ethernet systems with Real-Time Ethernet networks.


Our PROFIBUS/PROFINET connectors enable you to integrate each PROFIBUS DP slave into a higher-level PROFINET network, or simply program your SIMATIC S7 without expensive CP communication processors.

Fieldbus Gateways

Use the netTAP 100 fieldbus gateway to implement sophisticated conversions in industrial automation networks.

SmartWire-DT Gateways

Our gateways connect your SmartWire-DT devices and components into higher-level Real-Time Ethernet networks—saving you time with a flexible modular design. Save development costs and rely on intelligent wired solutions with SmartWire-DT and Hilscher.
