Phoenix Contact’s new compact PROFIBUS DP/V1 bus couplers enhance the range of flexible inline automation modules. The additionally integrated inputs and outputs make the bus coupler suitable for space-saving and cost-effective applications. It enables the flexible inline automation kit to be operated with PROFIBUS network. An inline station can be inserted at any point in a PROFIBUS DP network using the bus coupler. The device acts as a slave in PROFIBUS and a master in the lower-level inline local bus. The address of the PROFIBUS slave can easily be set via DIP switches from outside. The PROFIBUS DP bus coupler supports the proven inline diagnostics as well as the typical PROFIBUS DP diagnostic frames. Quick start-up and easy maintenance are guaranteed through clearly arranged diagnosis LEDs. The different colour-coded jumpering levels on the module allow sensors and actuators to be connected using the multiconductor system.
