ProfiHub runs multiple baud rates from a single controller

09 December 2014

ProfiSwitch X5, from Procentec is said to be the first ProfiHub to include the ability to run multiple baud rates within the same network, by a single controller. 

This transparent hub aims to modernise PROFIBUS installations by allowing channel baud rate customisation within one network, with the ease of adjusting a rotary switch. 

The ProfiSwitch X5 is said to eliminate the Profibus network baud rate constraints associated with spur lines, additional resistance, single master systems, poor cable segments and cable length limitations. Design limitations associated with legacy systems or new build systems are eliminated, creating the capability for unprecedented customisable network designs.

One PLC is now able to act as a workhorse with the ability to extend the network further, spur line hot swap, reduction of repeater installation, all without limiting speed performance. 

The ProfiSwitch X5 converts the main channel to other transmission speeds and acts as a transparent proxy without disturbing the host system (comparable with PA links).
