The modules make possible high-performance, low-cost solutions for industrial automation applications and are compatible with Master DP-V0 Class-1; Master DP-V1 Class-1 and Class-2; and Slave DP-V0 protocols. The modules can be configured as PROFIBUS Master, Slave or Master/Slave, delivering a flexible design that reduces inventory and spares. They offer up to 1984 input bytes and 1968 output bytes per master, making them suitable for large PROFIBUS networks. All three variants accommodate low-cost Ethernet cable and feature a 10/100 Mb Ethernet port that allows fast downloads as well as remote connections and monitoring. The modules provide backplane or front-module configuration options. A MicroSD card slot - with an 8 GB MicroSD card included - facilitates easy module swap-out. Offering a mean time between failures of 181 years, the modules provide reliable, trouble-free usage. Other features include 1000 V electrical isolation between ports, ensuring a robust, reliable network with high immunity to electrical noise. The modules are appropriate in applications that include material handling, packaging, agro-food, mining, and water/wastewater.
