Profibus master interface for mobile applications

15 March 2016

Softing has introduced the PBpro USB which is believed to be the world's smallest PROFIBUS master interface for PCs. The unit is compact enough to fit into a Profibus connector housing.

The fast PC connection via USB high-speed makes PBpro USB suitable for a wide variety of tasks, from network configuration and device parameterisation to plant maintenance and production data acquisition. The interface is connected directly to a device on the Profibus target system, avoiding circuit-induced reflections of the fieldbus signal.

The scope of delivery includes Windows drivers for XP to Windows 10, various programming examples, a communication DTM for FDT applications and a PROFIBUS configurator with commissioning function. 

Quick integration of OPC Client applications is possible via an optional Profibus OPC Server. Connectivity with Emerson’s AMS for access to HART devices via a PROFIBUS network is possible via Softing’s free TACC software.
