Gateway provides controller independent access to PROFIBUS DP

25 January 2021

smartLink HW-DP, from Softing Industrial Automation, provides controller-independent access to PROFIBUS DP networks.

The compact tool can be integrated without affecting the operation of existing installations and, as such, it enables Industry 4.0 connectivity for new and existing PROFIBUS DP networks. 

The smartLink HW-DP V1.01 enables access to process, asset, and diagnostic data from PROFIBUS devices and HART devices connected to PROFIBUS remote I/Os. Furthermore, it allows for secure data export to any system inside and outside the company's own network. The data which is relevant for optimisation processes is made available via open, standardised interfaces such as HART IP and FDT for subsequent applications This means that any HART IP clients can be used to set parameters for, monitor and evaluate field devices via these open communication standards.
