The ProfiHub B5 is an advanced, flexible
and robust network component for PROFIBUS DP installations, providing the
unique capability to implement long multi-device spur lines and backbone
structures with star/tree segments in IP 20
applications.There is also an IP 65
version available, the
ProfiHub A5.The days of one
long daisy chain installation are over! With the ProfiHub B5, a whole new
way of designing PROFIBUS DP Networks is possible.
With 5 Galvanic isolated channels (segments) and each channel
capable of handling up to 31 devices, each ProfiHub B5 can accommodate a
maximum of 155 devices. With no limit in serial placement or cascading of
ProfiHubs, you can arrange your network to meet your needs and budget.
Because the ProfiHub creates isolated segments, the slave devices can now
be removed and added during operation! Also electrical bus problems and EMC
disturbances in a segment do not spread to the other segments. The
intelligent logic and isolation circuits of the ProfiHub do not change the
bit width. This also means there is no limit to how many ProfiHubs are
connected in series!
