Can a ProSoft PROFIBUS DP v1 Master solution communicate directly with other PROFIBUS DP v1 Masters?

Search KB


Not all PROFIBUS DP v1 Master devices support Master to Master or "peer-to peer" messaging, as some do.  ProSoft PROFIBUS DP v1 Master solutions (those with -PDPMV1 in their part numbers) do not have peer-to-peer support built-in.  However, a PDPMV1 solution can exchange data with other PROFIBUS DP Masters if third-party DP-to-DP couplers are used for this data exchange.
