How To Use The SYSMAC Gateway Local Node In CX-Supervisor 3.2
This article shows how to use the new CX-Supervisor 3.2 SYSMAC device type with the local SYSMAC Gateway node.
Adding The Local SYSMAC Gateway Node

Now this is completed we have access to all the Sysmac Gateway local node points. This local node is very quick to access so can be used to reduce network access from CX-Supervisor - e.g. getting other PLCs to send unsolicited messages or by setting up cyclic data transfer for EIP.
