IC200BEM003 PROFIBUS Master Module allows a VersaMax
CPU005, CPUE05 or PROFINET Scanner (PNS) to send and receive data on a
PROFIBUS-DP V1 network.
The PROFIBUS Master module provides the following PROFIBUS
Supports all standard data rates
Supports a maximum of 3,584 bytes of input data and 3,584 bytes of output
data with a VersaMax CPU; a maximum of 1440 bytes of input data and 1440
bytes of output data with a PNS.
Supports a maximum of 125 PROFIBUS-DP slaves, with a maximum of 244
bytes of input data and 244 bytes of output data for each slave
Supports Sync and Freeze modes
Supports DP-V1 Read, Write and Alarm messages
Has PROFIBUS-compliant module and network status LEDs
This module must be located in a VersaMax Communications Carrier.
The PROFIBUS module receives its firmware upgrades indirectly from the
head end CPU or PNS using the WinLoader software utility. WinLoader is
supplied with any updates to the PROFIBUS module software.
