You have two devices in two different buildings on two completely different networks, one that uses the Profibus protocol to communicate, while the other one talks GE SRTP protocol and they need to talk to each other. What do you do?
A FieldServer is a protocol converter or gateway that can communicate in many different protocols and physical layers including Profibus protocol and the GE SRTP protocol. The Fieldserver acts as a middle man between the two devices. It reads data from one device, stores it internally and makes it available to the 2nd device using another protocol. This is how the FieldServer converts Profibus data to GE SRTP data.
It's a simple solution to a common problem that we can help you with.
The FieldServer Profibus protocol translator/gateway provides a wealth of features to enable data transfer between Profibus DP networks and different devices and networks utilizing serial, Ethernet or LonWorks protocols. The extensive library of FieldServer drivers provides easy Profibus DP interoperability with devices and networks used in building automation, HVAC, fire and process control industries.
Support is provided for Master and Server applications.
The FieldServer Profibus DP Master driver for the FS-B3520 can be used to transfer I/O data with up to 125 Profibus DP Slave devices. The FieldServer is programmed with an embedded database using the required third part configuration tool. The embedded database contains information on the number of slaves and I/O modules to be transferred with each slave. The tool requires the input of GSD/E files for each slave to be connected.
SRTP=Service Request Transfer Protocol
he GE-SRTP driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over Ethernet using GE-SRTP Driver protocol. Almost all GE automation equipment supports the GE-SRTP protocol when equipped with an Ethernet Port.
The FieldServer can emulate either a Server or Client. The driver, acting as a Client, is capable of reading and writing system memory of any number of remote SRTP capable devices. The FieldServer can scale word data ( %AQ, %AI, %R ) when acting as a Client.
When configured to act as an SRTP Server, the driver accepts system messages which write to system memory and responds to read requests. When acting as a Server the driver is always at privilege level 4 (allowing it to be written and read).
The driver cannot emulate a Client and Server simultaneously on the same connection to the same IP address.
