DF1 Master/Slave to PROFIBUS DP Slave Gateway

5105-DFCM-PDPS

The ProLinx DF1 Master/Slave to PROFIBUS DP Slave Gateway creates a powerful connection between devices on a PROFIBUS DP network and DF1 devices. This stand-alone DIN-rail mounted protocol gateway provides one serial port and one PROFIBUS DP Slave.
The DF1 protocol driver supports Master or Slave implementations of the protocol on each DF1 port. All DF1 ports are individually configurable.
The PROFIBUS DP Slave protocol driver supports the PROFIBUS V0 Slave implementation, providing powerful data transfer capability between the ProLinx module and Siemens PLCs or other hosts. User configurable data mapping and DP port operation make the interface an easy to use and powerful data transfer tool.

Features and Benefits

Applications

The DFCM-PDPS modules are the ideal solution for the many applications where PROFIBUS connectivity can be used to integrate DF1 devices into a system. The PROFIBUS DP Master gateway is a powerful module designed with Server support, enabling easy connection to Rockwell Automation PLCs (CLX, SLC, PLC, CPLX, and similar devices). In combination with the DF1 device support, the module provides a very powerful interface to the many DF1 devices which are in use in the industrial marketplace today. Applications for the module are found in most industries, especially the Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food Processing.

Specifications

Internal Database

The ProLinx module contains an internal database that consists of areas for application data, status information, and configuration information.

The internal database is shared between all ports on the module and is used as a conduit to pass information from a device on one network to one or more devices on another network.

Application Data Area

The data area is used to store and retrieve data by the protocol drivers and for data exchange between protocols. The database is used as a source for write commands to remote devices and holds data collected from the remote devices. Commands defined in the configuration file (stored in the configuration data area) control how the data is to be handled in the database.

Status Data Area

This area is used to store error codes, counters, and port status information for each port.

Configuration Data Area

This area contains module configuration information such as port configuration, network information, and command configuration. This configuration file is downloaded to, or uploaded from, this area.

Protocols

DFCM Protocol Specification


The DF1 protocol driver supports Master or Slave implementations of the protocol on each DF1 port. All DF1 ports are individually configurable.


Protocol Specifications

The DF1 Master/Slave Protocol driver provides extensive support for both Master and Slave implementations of the protocol. The serial port on the gateway is user-configurable to support the DF1 protocol (Master or Slave, Error Checking, Baud rate, etc).

General Parameters

Communication parameters

Local Station ID: 0 to 254
Ports 1 to 3 Baud Rate: 110 to 115K baud
Stop Bits: 1
Data Size: 8 bits
Parity: None, Even, Odd
RTS Timing delays: 0 to 65535 milliseconds

Error Checking

BCC and CRC

Miscellaneous

Full hardware handshaking control, providing radio, smart modem and multi-drop support
Floating point data supported

DF1 Master Protocol Specifications

The ports on the module can be individually configured as Master ports. When configured in master mode, the DFCM module is capable of reading and writing data to remote DF1 devices.

DF1 Master Driver

DF1 Modes

Full-Duplex - Master (Module generates commands)

Half-Duplex - Polling

Command List

Up to 100 commands per Master port, each fully-configurable for function, slave address, register to/from addressing and word/bit count

Polling of Command List

User-configurable polling of commands, including disabled, continuous, and on change of data (write only)

DF1 Slave Protocol Specifications

The ports on the module can be individually configured to support the Slave mode of the DF1 protocol. When in slave mode, the module can accept DF1 commands from a master to read/write data stored in the module's internal registers.
