Is the Siemens Simatic PDM PROFIBUS device management software compatible with ProSoft's ProTalkQ PTQ-PDPMV1 PROFIBUS Master solution?

Search KB


The ProSoft ProTalkQ PTQ-PDPMV1 PROFIBUS Master solution is supplied with a comDTM driver that allows it to be used with any PROFIBUS device management software that uses comDTM technology.  Examples of such software are PACTware and Endress+Hauser Field Care.

Siemens Simatic PDM software uses a competing technology and does not support or use comDTM technology. Therefore, Siemens Simatic PDM software is not compatible with and cannot be used with the PTQ-PDPMV1 ProSoft solution.
