As an economic solution, the B5+R saves costs through the reduction of traditional PROFIBUS repeaters. This product is equipped with 5 galvanically isolated transparent repeaters on a single unit (offering 6 segments). Each segment can handle 31 devices and a cable length equal to the main bus. To save costs on plugs and offer flexibility, it contains screw terminals as well as DB9 connectors. The DB9 connectors are also perfect measurement points for ProfiTrace to quickly measure all segments. Termination for each segment is on-board and switchable.
For PROFIBUS network designs, the ProfiHub B5+R offers a reliable and robust backbone solution with robust message checking and selectable redundancy on communication and power supply. The extensive monitoring of messages in combination with redundancy on the communication and voltage, makes the ProfiHub the perfect access port for network components. An alarm contact is linked to events based on the status of the power supply and the bus redundancy if this is enabled. Unlimited cascading of repeaters is possible with 1200 meter spur lines.
The ProfiHub B5+R is a powerful package to ensure reduced installation complexity, increased time utilisation and better deployment of project resources. The ProfiHub B5+R is used in several application areas worldwide.
