FieldServer Driver – Fieldbus


Profibus X30 DP Slave Driver



The FieldServer Profibus X30 DP Slave driver can be used to emulate a single slave station on a Profibus network.  DP Masters can open a connection of up to 244 Bytes of Input and 244 Bytes of Output data, but not exceeding a combined total of 416 Bytes to the FieldServer.  The FieldServer can be added to the Profibus network with the use of the supplied GSD file for the ANYBUSä card.  Connection to the Profibus network is via a DB9 port on the ANYBUSä card.
