The ProLinx PROFIBUS DP Slave to HART Multi-drop Gateway creates a powerful connection between devices on a PROFIBUS DP network and HART field devices. This stand-alone DIN-rail mounted protocol gateway provides one PROFIBUS DP Slave configurable DB9F port and 4 configurable HART Multi-drop channels. The PROFIBUS DP Slave protocol driver supports the PROFIBUS V0 Slave implementation, providing powerful data transfer capability between the ProLinx module and Siemens PLCs or other hosts. User configurable data mapping and DP port operation make the interface an easy to use and powerful data transfer tool. The HART protocol driver works as a Master on four (HART) or eight channels (HART2 not available on certain configurations) per interface card, depending on implementation. Each channel is individually configurable.
