ProSoft Technology's Profibus modules for CompactLogix

ProSoft Technology's ILX69 modules for CompactLogix are a cost-effective PROFIBUS solution.

 
ProfSoft's PROFIBUS DPV1 Master and Slave modules promise the convenience and functionality of an in-chassis PROFIBUS interface at the cost of a gateway.
 
With these modules, CompactLogix™ processors can easily communicate with slave devices supporting PROFIBUS DPV0 and DPV1 protocol. The module acts as an input/output module between the PROFIBUS network and the processor supporting complete Master specifications according to IEC 61158.
 
Master Features:
 
  • AOI: Module integrates with RSLogix 5000 using a sample Add-On Instruction (AOI), reducing configuration time
  • Autoscan: The Autoscan feature reduces configuration and start up times by scanning the PROFIBUS network and uploading slave device addresses and configuration information. (Reads and maps nodes automatically to the module.)
  • ComDTM: Allows remote Ethernet connectivity for Asset Management Software to significantly lower your maintenance costs. You can configure, commission, maintain and diagnose your fieldbus devices throughout their entire lifecycle with this comprehensive, fully integrated engineering and maintenance environment
  • SD card slot (SD card optional) is used for storing configuration files in the event of a disaster

Slave Features:
 
  • Ethernet port allows remote configuration and maintenance
  • Supports both I/O control and messaging
  • Explicit ladder logic CIP message blocks provide slave status diagnostic data and acyclic messaging
  • Module appears to the CompactLogix controller as a standard I/O module allowing it to be configured via RSLogix™ 5000
  • Equipped with a diagnostic interface and rotary switches for setting of the bus address
