The ProLinx family EtherNet/IP to PROFIBUS DP Slave communications module (5205-DFNT-PDPS) creates a powerful connection between devices on an EtherNet/IP network and a PROFIBUS master device. The module is a stand-alone DIN rail-mounted protocol gateway that provides one Ethernet port and one PROFIBUS DP Slave configurable DB9F port.
The DFNT-PDPS modules are the ideal solution for the many applications where EtherNet/IP connectivity can be used to integrate a PROFIBUS DP slave device into a system. The EtherNet/IP gateway is a powerful module designed with both Client and Server support, enabling easy connection to Rockwell Automation PLCs (CLX, SLC, PLC, CPLX, and similar devices). In combination with the PROFIBUS DP Slave support, the module provides a very powerful interface to the many PROFIBUS slave devices which are in use in the industrial marketplace today. Applications for the module are found in most industries, especially the Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food Processing.
