This specific application can be implemented with our ipConvPS protocol
converter which is capable of using the Profibus DPV0 protocol to communicate
with the Profibus. Implementation requires the Profibus distant terminal to be
set up as master. Selected
protocols are provided for communication with other devices (master or slave).
The IPCOMM proprietary Profibus DPV0 application layer enables the
transmission of data such as quality descriptors and time stamps. Using the
application layer requires however that the Profibus distant terminal is also
capable of sending and receiving information over this protocol.
A DIN rail mounted Embedded PC (HECPS) or 19" Industrial PC
(IPC191V3 19" 1U) with Profibus interface may be used as a suitable hardware platform.
