BridgeWay Gateways

The BridgeWay™ platform can be configured to support a wide range of applications, from a low-end serial to CAN interface, to high-end standalone communication gateways supporting multiple protocols. Designed as a modular platform with configurable hardware and software, BridgeWay’s products can be adapted to meet your business needs.

The BridgeWay™ Ethernet to J1939 Gateway (AB7645) supports EtherNet/IP™ and Modbus/TCP protocols over Ethernet. The AB7645 operates as an EtherNet/IP Adapter Class (server) device, allowing an EtherNet/IP Scanner (client) to read and write J1939 network PGN data. The AB7645 also operates as a Modbus/TCP Slave, allowing a Modbus/TCP Master to read and write J1939 network PGN data.

Our free Windows-based configuration tool (BWConfig) allows users to map J1939 parameter (PGN) data into input and output tables accessible over EtherNet/IP (via assembly data) or Modbus/TCP (via register data). It also supports Diagnostic (DM1 and DM2) messages for input messages.

The BridgeWay™ PROFIBUS to J1939 Gateway (AB7614) enables a PROFIBUS-DP Master to read and write J1939 network data. The AB7614 operates simultaneously as a PROFIBUS-DP Slave node on a PROFIBUS network, and a CAN node on a J1939 network. The module exchanges data from either network, based on a user-defined configuration.

Our free Windows-based configuration tool allows users to map J1939 parameter (PGN) data into the module’s input and output tables, accessible by the PROFIBUS Master as I/O data over the PROFIBUS-DP network.

The BridgeWay™ J1939 to Modbus Interface Gateway (AB7606) provides connectivity between a Modbus RTU (RS485 serial 2 wire) network and a J1939 (CAN) network. The AB7606 operates as a Modbus RTU Slave device, allowing a Modbus RTU Master to read and write J1939 PGN data.

We provide a free downloadable Windows-based configuration tool (BWConfig) for the AB7606. This PC-based software allows users to map J1939 parameter (PGN) data into the AB7606 I/O table memory, which is accessible from a Modbus RTU Master as Modbus registers.

Configuration of the AB7606 is easy with BWConfig. It consists of setting up an I/O table containing the J1939 PGNs you wish to read or write, and determining the rate at which each will be read or written from/to the J1939 network. BWConfig maps the I/O table to a range of Modbus registers accessible from the AB7606 Modbus RTU interface. Users download the configuration from BWConfig to the AB7606 via an RS232 connection. It saves in Flash memory. You can also upload an existing configuration from the AB7606 for comparison or to update the configuration.
