Modbus TCP/FF HSE to FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 Gateway

Integration of up to 4 FF H1 segments into control systems via Modbus TCP or FOUNDATION Fieldbus HSE

FF Network Integration via Modbus Including Redundancy

With Softing’s FG-200FF, you can easily integrate up to four FOUNDATION™ Fieldbus (FF) H1 links into control systems supporting Modbus. The Softing FG-200FF provides redundancy and is suitable for use in hazardous areas. This device features fast access to process data, while making use of Fiedbus Foundation (FF) advantages like reduced cabling, central field device parameterization, comprehensive diagnostics, or intrinsically safe device segments. The Fieldbus foundation gateway (FG-200FF) is compatible with the R. STAHL bus-Carrier Series 9419 and Fieldbus Power Supply Series 9412 products for easy commissioning.

 

Easy Commissioning with the FG-200FF

  • Optional support of R. STAHL bus-Carrier Series 9419 and Fieldbus Power Supply 9412 products (cabling reduced to a minimum)
  • Modbus data import to web server reducing mapping efforts

Easy Asset Management thanks to the FG-200FF

  • Visitor mode avoiding interference with network behavior
  • Enabling asset management systems (e.g. Emerson’s AMS) and Field Device Tool (FDT) frame applications (e.g. SMART VISION, FieldMate, Field Device Manager, FieldCare, or PACTware)

The FG-200FF gateway makes easy the device redundancy

  • Redundancy link enabling device redundancy (D-3 according to FF-593)
  • Automatic mirroring of configuration data
  • Very fast redundancy switch-over between 2* FG-200FF Fieldbus foundation Gateway

All Necessary Tools Included

  • FF Configuration Tool for configuration of devices and cyclic communication
  • PACTware for device configuration and basic asset management tasks

FG-200FF vs FG-100FF

FG-110 FG-200
CPU PowerPC 805T 100 MHz Cortex A9 400 MHz
H1 Interface (MAU) Inductive coupling (no bus power required) Bus-powered (10 mA drawn from bus)
Ethernet Ports 1 2 (medium redundancy, same IP address)
Redundancy Communication Serial Link (115,2 kBit/s) and Ethernet Serial Link (1 MBit/s) only, no load on Ethernet
Cabling All connectors on front side Fieldbus: bottom
Ethernet: front
Power: top or power bus in DIN rail
Mechanical Compatibility STAHL bus carrier

Compatibility

Functionality Comments
Host Interface
Device Interface
Engineering Existing projects can be downloaded without any changes
Mechanical Dimensions Smaller in each dimension: Same cabinet can be used
Bus Power Supply 10 mA required per Link (same as for all devices and most host systems)
FISCO Power Supplies with separate host interface must provide 10 mA on host side
Cabling Different positions, different connectors: Cables have to be modified
Redundancy Management FG-100/FG-110 and FG-200 cannot cooperate as redundant pair: No replacement of FG-110 by FG-200 in run possible. Complete redundant pair of Linking Devices has to be replaced at same time.
