New Analog Output Ethernet I/O Modules with Discrete I/O
Acromag expands their line of BusWorks®XT Ethernet I/O modules that are ideal for remote monitoring, distributed control, or SCADA applications. Models are offered in PROFINET and other Ethernet communication protocols.
New PROFINET Master Simulators
Master Simulators from Bihl+Wiedemann are simple, universal tools for commissioning as well as for testing slaves within systems. In addition to PROFIBUS Master Simulators (BW1131, BW1257, BW1258) Bihl+Wiedemann now also offers Master Simulators for PROFINET (BW3035 and BW3057).
Any Industrial Ethernet Network on any hardware
HMS Industrial Networks now releases “Anybus CompactCom for Common Ethernet” – a communication solution which includes an Ethernet hardware that is loadable with PROFINET, along with other Industrial Ethernet protocols.
Topology and Diagnostics for PROFINET
InduSol combines diagnostics and topology for monitoring PROFINET networks with its PROFInet-INspektor® hardware and PROscan® Active software, respectively.
New I/O module for Relay Connection
From Phoenix Contact: With the new digital output module for Axioline F, coupling relays can be easily connected to I/O stations via pre-assembled system cabling. The I/O terminals can be integrated into PROFINET networks via a compatible bus coupler.
EtherNet/IP to PROFINET Device Gateway
ProSoft introduces an Ethernet/IP to PROFINET gateway that can be used in a variety of applications, including those involving PLC-to-PLC interlocking, a SCADA interface or data concentration.
Mobile PROFIBUS Diagnostics and Cable Testing
Softing announces the release of its new mobile PROFIBUS Tester which provides extended functionality. The BC-700-PB combines bus physics, bus communication, and cable testing in one device.
New PROFIBUS ProfiHub Family
PROCENTEC has launched two brand-new products: the ProfiHub B4FO2+ and the Profihub B2FO2+. These robust network components are especially designed to be part of the communication backbone of a fiber optic PROFIBUS DP network.
