The XLTR-100 multiprotocol gateway allows information to be transferred seamlessly between many different fieldbus networks with minimal configuration requirements. The XLTR-100 provides two RS485 ports and two common serial ports for direct connectivity to Toshiba Adjustable Speed Drives (ASDs). The RS-485 ports are half-duplex 2-wire (A / B / Signal Ground / Shield) and allow a selection of various master and slave protocols. The RS232 port that can be used to configure the unit, update the internal firmware, or upload/download files. These various communication ports operate independently, and are configurable along with the unit's internal point database.

There are two common serial (aka logic level) ports for connection of Toshiba 7-series, 9-series, or VF-nC1 ASDs. ASD connections use the same standard RJ45 style 8-conductor UTP patch cables: any standard CAT5 Ethernet cable (found in most electronics stores) 5 meters or less in length can be used. ASD connections are automatically established and continuously monitored: no drive configuration needs to be performed to connect the unit to the drives. Just plug it in - it's that simple.

The XLTR-100 allows the user to select any of the supported slave protocols to be connected to any of the supported master protocols. This is accomplished through an element called the "point database". The point database is entirely user-configurable, and provides the end-to-end mapping information that allows primary network master requests to be routed to the correct locations on the secondary network slaves, while at the same time ensuring that the content of the request will be understood once it gets there. When properly configured, the gateway will become essentially "transparent" on the networks, and the primary network master can engage in a seamless dialogue with one or more secondary network devices.
