There are still a lot of serial end devices in diverse plants which are not compatible with PROFIBUS. It is important to integrate these devices to allow communication and data exchange and overcome the system limitations.
XPS-E can be easily installed and is distinguished by its user friendliness. External devices, such as a serial configuration tool on a PC, are not required to carry out the configuration. All connections are by D-SUB connectors or spring clip terminals which can all be connected and removed easily. The PROFIBUS station address is set via coding switches. The gateway is designed for DIN rail installation.
All send and receive sequences of the serial devices are depicted 1:1 on the PROFIBUS. XPS-E can be easily integrated as a PROFIBUS DP Slave via the generic station description file (GSD) into existing configurations. Thus these devices can be quickly connected to
PROFIBUS networks. Furthermore, it is possible to integrate devices with Modbus ASCII/RTU interface.
XPS-E offers a wide variety of possibilities for the synchronisation of the serial send and receive data with the PROFIBUS. Our drivers, which can be customised to your special requirements, allow the pre-processing of the data in the gateway.
