Multi-Channel Repeater 'ProfiHub B5+R'

The B5+R allows for better maintenance control through: spur line isolation, DB9 and pin connectors for operational Troubleshooting & Maintenance measurements, and notification capabilities of failure. 

For PROFIBUS network designs, the B5+R offers a reliable and robust backbone solution with robust message checking, redundancy on communication and power.  There can be unlimited cascading of repeaters with 1200 meter spur lines.

As an economic solution, the B5+R saves cost through reduction of traditional PROFIBUS repeaters, by offering 5 channels of communication on 1 unit.  Installation costs are reduced further by allowing for quick connection of channels, auto baud rate detection, and unit termination. A powerful package to ensure reduced installation complexity, increased time utilization and better deployment of project resources.
