Molex has introduced its SST™ PB3-CPX Modules to connect Rockwell Automation CompactLogix L2, L3 and L4 controllers to PROFIBUS DP-V0 and DP-V1 Networks. The modules enable high-performance, low-cost solutions for industrial automation applications and are compatible with Master DP-V0 Class-1; Master DP-V1 Class-1 and Class-2; and Slave DP-V0 protocols.
SST™ PB3-CPX Master/Slave Modules can be configured as PROFIBUS Master, Slave or Master/Slave, delivering a flexible design that reduces inventory and spares. The modules are easy to spec in and offer up to 1,984 input bytes and 1,968 output bytes per master, making them suitable for large PROFIBUS networks.
The UMG 96RM is a very compact and powerful multifunctional measuring device for energy measurement technology. The new UMG 96RM-PN model is certified for PROFINET and is suitable for using PROFIenergy.
As a multifunctional network analyser, the device offers features that are unique in this class: It does not just capture electrical consumption data and standard values but also power quality values such as harmonics up to the 40th harmonic. A further highlight is integrated residual current monitoring (RCM), which can be used to detect insulation faults at an early stage. This increases the system availability and reduces the risk of fire.
The Profinet protocol is directly integrated into the samos PRO COMPACT SP-COP-ENI modules. There are also corresponding Gateway modules available for Profibus-DP, and other fieldbusses. Communication project planning is realized via samos® PLAN5+, the graphic programming tool from Wieland Electric.
