This segment coupler provides speed on Profibus DP

With the basic segment coupler (photo) — the successor to SK1 and SK2 — Profibus PA nodes appear as DP nodes in the distributed control system (DCS) and can be configured and diagnosed without additional tools. The basic segment coupler provides this transparency without any configuration of its own. The simplicity of this design assists in efficient generation of big data for optimized process management. At the same time, both transmission rate and timing of the two systems are completely de-coupled. Communication to the DCS benefits from responses with zero delay by the PA nodes at a transmission rate of up to 1.5 megabits/s on Profibus DP. The basic segment coupler from FieldConnex supports a high segment count per cabinet requiring only 20 mm on the DIN-rail and very low heat dissipation. — Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH, Mannheim, Germany
