Connecting Profibus DP and PA devices

Connecting Schneider Electric devices to market standards.

  • Features

    PROFIBUS is the leading fieldbus with more than 30 millions of nodes installed on DP and PA. PA is the preferred technology for the instrumentation connectivity  in the process industry. Open, PROFIBUS offers efficient communication between the control system including asset management tools and the devices. The new PROFIBUS Remote Master module provides these functions for Modicon PAC.

    NEW !
    PROFIBUS Remote Master Module

    • Remote management of PROFIBUS DP V1 and PA devices.
    • Connectivity of asset managet managel supporting FDT/DTM technology.


    Connecting Schneider Electric devices to market standards
    Manage remotely the PROFIBUS PA or DP V1 devices from Modicon Quantum, Premium, M340 or any Asset Management Tool supporting FDT/DTM technology.
    Plug the new PROFIBUS Remote Master or PRM on Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP network, at the nearest of the process or the instruments.
    Only one tool, EcoStruxure Control Expert, is required to create the PROFIBUS configuration, the PLC application, and to set the device parameters


    The Process applications, mainly the one using instrumentation on PROFIBUS PA and where the possibility to connect an asset management tool is a significant plus: water treatment, food and beverage, Oil and Gas, Mining, cement industry, etc
