Profibus DP Base Controller for Terminator I/O
A Terminator Field I/O system is made up of the following components: 1 or more power supplies (depending on your power budget), a network interface module (Base Controller), and I/O modules.
Terminator I/O supports up to 16 I/O modules per node (network interface module). Multiple nodes can be connected to a master (PLC or PC).
If you are using a Profibus controller network, the Terminator I/O sub-system will help further reduce the cost of your overall application. The T1H-PBC module allows the micro-modular Terminator I/O sub-system to be linked with a Profibus master controller.
Profibus is a control bus that provides a common method to connect automation equipment with devices on a single network. This standard communications media is referred to as Profibus and significantly reduces hardwiring costs.
Profibus provides specifications for information exchanged between nodes, such as controller data associated with low-level device and configuration parameters individually related to system operations.
