The NL-MPI gateway, which consists of a PROIFIBUS MPI interface together with a 10/100 MBit/s Ethernet interface, is built into a D-Sub housing developed for connecting the PROFIBUS cable. Due to the housing structure, the NL-MPI can be plugged directly onto the MPI plug. Via an Ethernet cable of 3 m length, the device can be connected to a switch, a hub or a PC. Power is supplied directly through the MPI plug.

Gateways are for transferring and converting data between two identical or two different industrial automation networks. They provide a cost-effective solution that is easy to deploy for any kind of data conversion whether the application is a classic fieldbus, Ethernet, Real-Time Ethernet or a combination.
