From a certain number of slaves, it makes sense to switch a Profibus gate between measurement modules and the Profibus master (1). This will reduce the frame data and the data transfer is made more efficient. In distributed configurations with reduced channel count it can be quite helpful, that the single module provides a complete Profibus interface (2) and run in a fieldbus with other Profibus devices(3).
With the option Profibus interface individual Q.bloxx modules can be integrated into a Profibus structure, where they communicate easily with a data rate of up to 12 Mbps with the Profibus master.
The option Profibus interface is now available for all Q.bloxx modules.
