Multiple Baudrate, Multi-Channel PROFIBUS Repeater

The X5 allows for better maintenance control through: spur line isolation, DB9 and pin connectors for operational Troubleshooting & Maintenance measurements, and notification capabilities of failure.

Automation & Design Engineers

Network designs where optimization of speeds is required, can be simplified with one unit where multiple baudrates will operate on one PLC. The PLC does not require any special programing, the spur lines can be cascaded unlimited with up to 1200 meter spur lines, and solves numerous legacy system issues which can occur with standard maintenance of project upgrades. The unit is transparent, creating a virtual network, within a network, which operates seamlessly to the PLC. The X5 can also allow for wireless systems to be connected, with out sacrificing speed of the communication on the rest of the network.

Electrical and Instrumentation Purchasing Managers

It is an economic solution, since if you have legacy systems at your facility, it would not be required to create a separate network. Further, with the X5, you get all the functionality of a standard repeater, but when slowing baudrates on allowable spur lines you can save on installation of other repeaters and connector costs. The X5 further saves cost through reduction of traditional PROFIBUS repeaters, by offering 5 channels of communication on 1 unit. Installation costs are reduced 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.

Electrical and Automation Maintenance Professionals

The X5 can be installed into an existing network as a spur line extender. If you maintain legacy systems, which you would like to add to, this creates an easy solution. You can monitor on the X5, with utilization of a ProfiTrace PROFIBUS testing unit on a DB9 connector on the unit.
