If you need the convenience and functionality of an in-chassis PROFIBUS® interface at the cost of a gateway, then ProSoft Technology’s new PROFIBUS DPV1 Master and Slave modules for CompactLogix™ give you just that.
The Master module integrates with RSLogix™ 5000 using a sample Add-On Instruction, which reduces its configuration time.
The Master module’s Autoscan feature helps reduce configuration and startup times by scanning the PROFIBUS network and uploading the slave devices’ addresses and configuration information so the user doesn’t have to manually input the information. The Master module also enables asset-management software to remotely configure, commission, maintain and diagnose your fieldbus devices over their entire lifecycle.
The Master module’s SD card allows the user to store configuration files, which can be used for disaster recovery.
