Profibus interface for mobile applications
Softing’s PBpro USB is a compact Profibus master interface for PCs that is designed to fit into a Profibus connector housing. The PC connection via USB high-speed makes PBpro USB ideal for tasks such as network configuration and device parameterization to plant maintenance and production data acquisition. The interface is connected directly to a device on the Profibus target system, thereby avoiding circuit-induced reflections of the fieldbus signal. The product is also well equipped on the software side. The scope of delivery includes Microsoft Windows drivers for XP to Windows 10, various programming examples, a communication DTM for FDT applications and a Profibus configurator with commissioning function. PBpro USB can be used directly in a variety of applications and it can be integrated with OPC Client applications via an optional Profibus OPC Server.
