AN-X-PB,PROFIBUS Multi-Slave or PROFIBUS Network Analyzer Gateway

PROFIBUS Multi-Slave or PROFIBUS Network Analyzer Gateway, non-CE


The PROFIBUS Multi-Slave or PROFIBUS Network Analyzer Gateway has two distinct operational modes.  The first mode, PROFIBUS Multi-Slave, enables the transfer of large amounts of data from a PROFIBUS DP Master controller to EtherNet/IP and/or Modbus TCP-enabled PLCs.  The Multi-Slave functionality allows up to 15,250 words of Input and Output data to be transferred without requiring multiplexing PLC code to be written in a traditional single slave solution. The second mode, PROFIBUS Network Capture, facilitates the capture, logging, and filtering of packets on a PROFIBUS network without interrupting the running production network.  This enables a root cause analysis to be performed on the captured PROFIBUS packets which aids in the identification of complex issue(s).

PROFIBUS Multi-Slave Features:    

  • Configures through a web browser (No special configuration software required)
  • Configuration option of 1 to 125 PROFIBUS slaves
  • Supports PROFIBUS Baud Rates of 9600 bps - 12 Mbps
  • PROFIBUS Network monitoring tool shows network traffic to and from a user specified node address
  • Ability to view configuration and diagnostics through a web browser enabling remote monitoring or troubleshooting
  • Supports sending up to 250 words of input data, and 248 words of output data on an I/O connection to an Allen-Bradley PLC
  • Supports Class 3 message instructions to move data to Allen-Bradley PLCs
  • Supports up to 16 Modbus TCP client connections
  • Supports Modbus Function Codes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 15, 16

PROFIBUS Capture Features:

  • Passively monitors all PROFIBUS packets sent across the network
  • Capture file can be configured to use a circular buffer, to capture data for a specific amount of time, or to stop capturing after a specified number of errors have occurred.
  • Filtering options include: Source Address, Destination Address, Frame Control Values, Detailed Status,
  • Frame Data, and Frame CheckSum which enables only the data specified to be logged and displayed
  • A filtering equation can be written to further limit the captured and displayed data
  • Customizable time format
  • Captured data can be saved for future use
  • Passively monitors all PROFIBUS packets sent across the network
