ProSoft Technology Releases PROFIBUS DPV1 Master Connectivity for Quantum Processors

BAKERSFIELD, Calif., September 28, 2005
 ProSoft Technology's new PROFIBUS DPV1 Master module for Schneider Electric's Quantum platform provides a user-friendly connectivity solution for Quantum users to connect to PROFIBUS DP slaves. The module acts as a PROFIBUS network scanner, providing high-speed transfer of Cyclic Input and Output data between PROFIBUS devices and the processor memory table, over the backplane.

The PROFIBUS module for Quantum (PTQ-PDPMV1) is the ideal solution for many applications where PROFIBUS slave communication is required in a Quantum/Unity system. The PROFIBUS Master module has been designed to address the expanding interest in connectivity between Schneider Electric and PROFIBUS in industrial applications such as manufacturing, packaging, water/wastewater, and oil & gas applications.
