The ProLinx family Modbus Master/Slave to PROFIBUS Master communications module (5104-MCM-PDPM) creates a powerful connection between devices on a Modbus network and PROFIBUS DP Slave devices. The module is a stand-alone DIN-rail mounted protocol gateway that provides one serial port and one PROFIBUS Master DB9F port.
The Modbus (MCM) protocol driver supports Master and Slave implementations of the protocol. All Modbus serial ports are individually configurable, providing a very powerful and flexible host or device interface solution.
The PROFIBUS DP Master (PDPM) protocol driver supports Master implementations of the protocol on either a Mono-Master or Multi-Master network.
