Product description

netLINK PROXY integrates a PROFIBUS-DP slave into any superordinate PROFINET network. As connector
the device is plugged directly onto the PROFIBUS-DP interface of the DP-Slave and connects to the PROFINET
network via the RJ45 socket.
On PROFINET side netLINK behaves like an ordinary IO device. The DP-Slave's process data are mapped in
accordance with the present PI-organisation's guideline into the PROFINET slot/subslot addressing model.
Commissioning is done via the Ethernet port with either a direct connection to the PC or if already installed
and during run time via a PROFINET switch. netLINK PROXY is configured with the FDT/DTM based planning,
configuration and diagnostic tool
With few steps netLINK is getting operative. In case there is no slave GSD file available, a scan function is able
to identify the slave on PROFIBUS. After the configuration and the I/O process data length is known, converts the parameters automatically into a standardized GSDML file. This file imports to any
PROFINET controller configuration utility and gets netLINK into operation effortless.
The netLINK Proxy is supplied by 24 V. During mounting the voltage can be tapped comfortably from the
DP-Slave and be led to the 2-pin COMBICON connector. The short distance on PROFIBUS makes a
terminator unnecessary.
netLINK PROXY - a cost-efficient and handy alternative to redevelopments to get existing DP devices integrated
straightforward into the PROFINET world.
