IPxxxx-, IL230x-B/C31x | Fieldbus Box modules for PROFIBUS

The PROFIBUS devices in the Fieldbus Box series support PROFIBUS DP. Central control devices (such as IPCs or programmable logic controllers) communicate here over a fast serial connection with distributed input and output devices. Data is mainly exchanged cyclically, although acyclic services (DP V1) are also available for parameterisation and diagnosis.

The high speed of PROFIBUS DP is most impressive: with a transmission rate of 12 Mbaud, less than 2 ms are needed to exchange 512 bits of input and 512 bits of output data with 32 bus devices. This satisfies the requirement for a short system reaction time.

The Beckhoff PROFIBUS devices have a powerful implementation of the protocol and are certified by PNO, the PROFIBUS user organisation.

The fieldbus modules for PROFIBUS DP are available as standard variant (B/C310) or optionally with integrated tee-connector (B/C318). This makes the fieldbus wiring much easier. The tee-connector that used to be necessary is replaced by a second M12-type fieldbus input/output. This makes the cabling more compact. Straight or angled versions of pre-assembled plugs or field-assembled plugs can be used.

 

Configuration

The node address is set in the range from 1 to 99 using two decimally coded rotary switches. The transmission rate is recognised automatically by the PROFIBUS box (auto baud rate). Device database files (*.gse) for PROFIBUS configuration tools are available for download from the Beckhoff internet site www.beckhoff.com and on the Beckhoff product CDs. Special I/O parameters can be set by means of the KS2000 software or via acyclic DP V1 services.

 

Diagnostics

The extensive diagnostic functions of the Beckhoff PROFIBUS devices allow rapid fault localisation. The diagnostic messages are transmitted over the bus and collated by the master. The status of the network connection, the device status, the I/O status and the status of the power supply are displayed by LEDs.

 

Compact Box

Compact Box modules for PROFIBUS DP are available for all relevant industrial signals. In addition to digital and analog input and output modules including thermocouple and RTD inputs, there are also incremental encoder interfaces available for displacement and angle measurement in addition to serial interfaces to solve a large number of communication tasks.

 

Coupler Box

The PROFIBUS Coupler Box gathers the I/O data from the Extension Box modules over the interference-free IP-Link fibre optic cable. It detects the connected modules and automatically allocates the input and output data to the process image. Both data consistency and a clear separation of input and output data are ensured. The Coupler Box has four digital inputs and four digital outputs. Other kinds of signals are available in the Extension Box.

 

PLC Box

The PLC Box is an intelligent PROFIBUS node that can perform decentralised processing of I/O data and execute control tasks independently of the function of the PROFIBUS network. The PLC Box, like the Coupler Box, has four digital inputs and four digital outputs. Up to 120 further Extension Box modules can be connected via IP-Link. The I/O data can be made available either to the local PLC program or to the supervising controller. The PLC Box is programmed using TwinCAT over the PROFIBUS or through the configuration interface.
