Advanced 1 channel repeater for Profibus DP networks, IP20 rated. Supports redundant power supplies and has DB9 connector for maintenance functions.
The advanced 12 Mbps core of the B1 is identical as the ProfiHub; it can be cascaded unlimitedly and has increased signal strength. It does not have the frustrating short-circuit bug and the data is constantly monitored for glitches which are digitally filtered out. Every channel has on-board switchable termination and able to drive 31 devices.
The removable screw terminals of the PROFIBUS interface are pinned-out in a way that reversal mounting of the repeater does not impact existing wiring. A DB9 connector is provided for ProfiTrace or other maintenance/engineering tools.
