Woodhead upgrades PROFIBUS Scanner for DTM Devices
Lisle, IL (October 27, 2006) - Woodhead Industries announces the release of a new solution for its SST PROFIBUS Scanner for the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix or Honeywell PlantScape controller (Part number SST-PFB-CLX-RLL).
This new version includes a CommDTM software interface (SST-PFB-CLX-DTM) that enables the SST PROFIBUS Scanner to configure and diagnose user-friendly DTM field devices by using FDT engineering tools such as PACTware or FieldCare. FDT (Field Device Tool) technology enables to standardize the communication interface between field devices and systems.
The SST CommDTM driver can manage different functions such as:
The SST Configuration tool is now able to use the RLL feature for remote monitoring and downloading of changes to the PROFIBUS configuration through the Rockwell Automation RSLinx software via Ethernet.
The new release supports also PROFIBUS DP-V1 and all baud rates (i.e. 31.25 / 45.45 kbit/s), enhancing the SST PROFIBUS Scanners use in PROFIBUS PA networks through a PROFIBUS PA segment coupler.
Woodhead is an active member of PROFIBUS International and provides a complete line of PROFIBUS connectivity solutions through its gateways, diagnostic tools, network interface cards, PLC interface modules, physical media, and I/O modules.
