PROFINET IO ModuleThe COMbricks PROFINET Device enables the largest multiple cross gateway between other PROFINET and PROFIBUS modules which are placed in the backplane. Simultaneously, the PLC/DCS system that has the PROFINET Device in Data Exchange can access inserted I/O modules.

It’s the component of choice to establish communication between multiple PROFINET and PROFIBUS controllers that manage their own specific network. The gateway works the same way as regular DP/DP and PN/DP couplers. The data area between the modules is customized with the help of some pre-defined blocks from the GSD files. COMbricks has the advantage that 10 PROFINET / PROFIBUS modules can exchange information.

The configuration steps are the same as any other PROFINET device. By means of the GSD file the respective I/O modules have to be selected in the configuration tool, after which the PLC can make the I/Os available for the software application and the network.

Application areas

  • Coupling small machines.
  • Linking networks with different controllers.
  • Coupling PROFINET to PROFIBUS.
  • Coupling PROFIsafe networks to regular networks.
  • Migration from old control systems to new control systems.
  • Quasi master-master communication.
  • Virus / Hacker free PROFINET separator.
