The Head Station is the primary element of ComBricks and has to be inserted in the most left slot of the fixed backplane socket. It schedules the interaction between all modules and provides data storage and an Ethernet interface for the user.


Type 1B is an enhanced type that contains a ProfiTrace core for monitoring one PROFIBUS network and an advanced web server for permanent remote maintenance of the PROFIBUS installation over Ethernet (hardware is identical as a type 1A). For monitoring repeater or slave modules are required to provide PROFIBUS telegrams on the backplane network. All modules must be configured on the same network. For more networks see Head Station Type 1C.


Through the ProfiTrace 2 software package, OPC tags can be directly streamed from the Head Station type 1B. ProfiTrace 2 will run with full monitoring functionality and the user can benefit from its features.

The Head Station provides power to all modules through its redundant power supply.
