Molex's Brad SST communication modules connect Rockwell ControlLogix as a slave to Profibus DP-V0 network. Courtesy: MolexMolex’s Brad SST Communication Modules SST-PB3S-CLX-RLL, SST-PB3S-CLX-RLL-CC and SST-PB3S-CLXT-RLL are designed to handle up to 244 word data exchange for a slave connection of Rockwell ControlLogix systems to Profibus network. The Brad SST Communication Modules are Profibus PNO-certified and fully compatible with the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture environment. The modules feature a custom add-on profile for Rockwell RSLogix 5000 and Studio 5000 and enable simple, fill-in template configuration. The dedicated Profibus slave modules, which include a scrolling LCD character display and built-in LEDs showing system, communication, and network status, simplifies user implementation and diagnostics. The custom add-on profile in the Logix programming environment eliminates the need for Ladder Logic for configuration and data transfer between the Brad SST Module and the processor.
