17 April 2014

PROCENTEC is a specialist in the field of PROFIBUS and PROFINET and delivers products that optimise the production processes of end-users. Companies are utilising these innovative products worldwide in order to create reliable and functioning networks. This is also the case with the South Korean steel company POSCO. POSCO has installed the powerful ProfiHub B5+ of PROCENTEC in its PROFIBUS DP networks to guarantee the highest uptime in the future. A higher uptime results in lower operational costs and the optimisation of the entire production process.

POSCO is one of the largest steel producers in the world. The most optimal uptime of the production process is crucial for strengthening the international competitive position. That is the reason why POSCO has placed 200 ProfiHubs B5+ in twenty PROFIBUS DP networks. Because of this the entire system has been optimised and consequently downtime can be prevented in the future.

The ProfiHub B5+ is part of the well-known ProfiHub family. It is a powerful network component which offers a reliable solution for branch lines and star structures in PROFIBUS DP networks which operate at a high speed. The ProfiHub B5+ has a main connection and five voltaic separated, transparent channels. A maximum of 31 devices can be connected to each channel and a distance not exceeding 1200 metres can be bridged. Each channel has breakdown protection which ensures that the rest of the PROFIBUS DP network continues to function correctly and the availability of the system remains optimal.
