Softing presents with "PB per USB"The world's smallest Profibus master interface for PC. It is so compact that it fits into a Profibus connector housing. In the format of a matchbox, it can easily be stored in a notebook bag as a practical companion for mobile use.
The fast PC connection via USB high-speed, via which the interface is also supplied, makes PB pro USB a suitable interface for a wide range of tasks, from network configuration via device parameterization to system maintenance and operational data acquisition. The interface is plugged directly onto a device in the Profibus target system, thus avoiding line-related reflections of the fieldbus signal.
On the software side, in addition to the Windows driver for XP to Windows 10 and various programming examples, a communication DTM for FDT applications and a Profibus configurator with commissioning function are included in the scope of delivery.
With software compatibility with its widely used predecessor ProfIusb, PB pro USB can be used in a variety of marketable applications. The quick and easy integration of OPC client applications can be done via the optional Profibus OPC server.
