New Profibus/Profinet interface version improves usability

PROFINET/ PROFIBUS – the successful, industrial field bus standard guarantees flexibility, efficiency and performance, and is able to meet the growing requirements in the field of automation reliably and sustainably. The software is designed for the fast data exchange at the lowest level of industrial communication hierarchy.

ZUMBACH offers virtually its entire product range with PROFIBUS DP interfaces. A new version has now been released.

Beginning in October 2012 this new software is delivered with all ODAC® DP diameter measuring heads, KW 13TRIO fault detectors and CI-1J/RS-DP computer interfaces.

A PROFIBUS appliance can be easily and simply integrated into the Profibus master with PROFIBUS/PROFINET. The Drag & Drop function minimizes the programming effort. Added to which, the required system settings can be configured directly in the Profibus project pool, which is based on an appliance-specific GSD file.

Starting 2013 the new PROFIBUS/PROFINET interface will be available for further appliances: ODEX® 10 – combined diameter/eccentricity an ovality measuring system, CAPAC® – Capacitance measuring systems, MSD – Diameter and ovality measuring systems, DST – Spark Tester and UMAC CI B – Measured value processor for ultrasonic measurements with UMAC® scanners.
