The ProLinx family Modbus Master/Slave to PROFIBUS DP Slave communications module (5105-MCM-PDPS) creates a powerful connection between devices on a Modbus network and a PROFIBUS DP Master device. The module is a stand-alone DIN rail-mounted protocol gateway that provides one confgurable serial port and one DB9F PDPS 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 Slave (PDPS) protocol interface supports the PROFIBUS V0 Slave implementation protocol, providing powerful data transfer capability between the ProLinx module and Siemens PLCs or other hosts. User configurable data mapping and DP port operation make the interface an easy to use and powerful data transfer tool.
