The ComBricks PROFIBUS DP slave module has considerable added value for the installation. It is the only available device with a powerful 3-in-1 functionality: PROFIBUS DP slave device - ProfiTrace busmonitor - Modular repeater

 

The slave device enables the largest multiple cross gateways between PROFINET and PROFIBUS modules which are placed in the backplane. Simultaneously it permanently monitors the segment/network and acts as a repeater when it is used in combination with other communication modules.

 

Slave device (gateways and remote I/O)

 

It’s the component of choice to establish communication between multiple PROFINET and PROFIBUS controllers that manage their own specific network. The gateway works similarly to regular DP/DP and PN/DP couplers. The data area between the modules is customized with the help of pre-defined blocks from the GSD files. COMbricks has the advantage that 10 PROFINET / PROFIBUS modules can exchange information. The configuration steps are the same as any other PROFIBUS slave device. By means of the GSD file the respec
