CONTROL SYSTEMS & PLCS W/ PROFIBUS

PROFILINK.908 is a high-speed solution for migrating Modicon Quantum and Series 800 I/O to any PLC or control system supporting Profibus. PROFILINK.908 converts the high-speed (1.54Mbps) Modicon S908 remote I/O packets to 12Mbps Profibus DP.  Therefore, the Profilink.908 requires a Profibus DP enabled control system or PLC to transmit the Modicon I/O data to the Controller.

Control Systems and Controllers with PROFIBUS DP Support.

The manufacturers of most new Control Systems and large PLC’s support Profibus DP directly.  Manufacturers in this category include ABBEmerson (Fisher-Rosemount)FoxboroSiemens (including Moore) and Yokogawa.  Honeywell and GE have approved and may be directly supporting third party modules.

 

For manufacturers not directly supporting Profibus, third party modules are available.  Systems included in this category include Allen-BradleyGEHoneywell and Reliance.  Process Computer Technology, Inc offers Systems Integration services for Allen Bradley and GE PLC’s.

A special subcategory of third party support is Profibus modules for various PC busses including ISAPCI,Compact PCIPC/104 and PCMCIA.

 

Below are lists of Profibus enabled controls and third party modules. These lists are not all inclusive. Check with your manufacturer and The Profibus Trade Organization (PTO) for the latest availability and information.

Migrate Your MODICON® I/O to a New Control System!

 

The PCT PROFILINK.908 is an engineered solution for users of the Modicon® Quantum® or Series 800 I/O to migrate to an Open Control System without the expense of replacing the existing I/O and field wiring.  The PROFILINK.908 converts the S908 protocol signal from the Modicon® I/O to a standard Profibus DP signal.  The PROFILINK.908 is then connected to the control system of your choice that supports Profibus DP.  If added reliability is required a Redundant and Fault Tolerant solution is available.
