ESEPRO is a Profibus gateway specifically designed to interface Woodward's Easygen series genset controls with Profibus-DP networks. It interfaces via the CAN bus with the Woodward controls and is easy to configure using standard Profibus configuration tools like Simatic Manager.
A single ESEPRO added to the CAN network will make all Visualisation Data of connected Woodward CANopen controls available without adding additional load to the CAN bus communication. The Visualisation Data is buffered in the ESEPRO gateway which decouples Profibus’ cyclic process I/O from the CANopen cyclic TPDO transfers.
The ESEPRO appears as a modular I/O module in the Profibus configuration tool.
