FLEXtraŽ twinRepeater, PROFIBUS-Inferface: No. of: 2, protocol: PROFIBUS-DP, transmission rate: max. 12 Mbit/s, autom. detection, connection: SUB-D-socket 9-pole, Segment connection: via PROFIBUS-plug
Despite its small size, the FLEXtraŽ twinRepeater is a full PROFIBUS repeater designed for mounting on a DIN rail.
It regenerates the incoming electrical signal on a bus line and retransmits it (bit reshaping and retransmission).
The signals are restored in level, slope, and duty cycle.
The FLEXtraŽ twinRepeater supports data rates of 9.6 kbps to 12 Mbps and recognizes them automatically.
It can be used for bus extension (up to 1 km with 2 FLEXtraŽ twinRepeaters), to increase the number of participants, and to expand the system.
At the same time, use in MPI networks is possible.
As a special application option, the FLEXtraŽ twinRepeater allows the setup of stubs as separate segments.
The status LEDs integrated for each segment provide a quick overview of the current bus status. Furthermore, the FLEXtraŽ twinRepeater provides electrical isolation between the two PROFIBUS segments.
In addition, it has a switch to turn off the repeating function.
The segments are separated but continue to function for themselves.
PROFIBUS connectors are required for connection to the PROFIBUS cable.
