NETLinkŪ USB Compact, MPI/PPI/PROFIBUS-Gateway, Communication interface: USB 2.0; 12 Mbit Fullspeed/480 Mbit Highspeed; Protocol: FDL, tunneled, MPI/PPI/PROFIBUS-Interface: RS485 isolated; max. 12 Mbit/s autom. detection; SUB-D plug 9 pol. with PG-Interface
The NETLinkŪ USB Compact combines flexibility and a compact design with the advantages of plug and play.
It can be integrated on each MPI/PROFIBUS interface of the bus system.
The PG socket integrated in the housing allows connection of additional devices.
The connection to the PC is established with the 3 m high-speed USB cable.
The NETLinkŪ USB Compact is supplied with voltage by the USB bus; on the USB side, the full-speed (12 Mbps) and high-speed (480 Mbps) protocols are supported.
The NETLinkŪ USB Compact enables the implementation of a USB interface to the MPI/PROFIBUS for programming or visualization, with the full transmission rate of up to 12 Mbps and a maximum of 32 simultaneously opened connection channels.
The transmission rate is detected automatically, and passive bus participants can also be addressed in single-master operation.
The supplied driver automatically integrates with the S7 Engineering Tools.
In addition, the MPI/PPI/PROFIBUS is electrically isolated from the USB interface (function separation).
SHTools is included as configuration and diagnostics software.
This means that a firmware update can be performed automatically at any time for function extensions.
