    COMbricks 1-Channel Repeater Module consists of a 1-Channel Repeater and a backplane unit that snaps into existing Head Stations' or Repeater Modules' backplane unit.

    COMbricks™ is a Modular PROFIBUS repeater platform that allows you to build an intelligent repeater backbone for permanent monitoring of up to four PROFIBUS Networks at the same time!

    All COMbricks systems consist of a Head Station plus up to 10 repeater modules. The repeater modules come with either one or two channels (PROFIBUS segments) which enables a backbone to be built with a maximum of 20 segments with a single COMbricks system. In addition, each segment can be assigned to any one of four possible networks!

    The Head Station has an Ethernet port, and when equipped with ProfiTrace OE, the COMbricks headstation will allow you to remotely monitor up to 4networks (as designated on the modular repeaters) over the network.

    ProfiTrace OE allows you to monitor the installation remotely over the network using just a web browser. It is now possible to check the health of your installation from anywhere in the world using ProfiTrace OE, thus allowing you to get maintenance personnel on the scene more quickly, and to diagnose and correct the problem fast.

  • Modular PROFIBUS Repeaters

    The current trend with PROFIBUS projects is to highly segment the installation using repeaters, fiber optics and ProfiHubs. In this way, many of the common faults, such as grounding, shielding and other cabling difficulties are isolated and minimized. COMbricks complements this trend by adding another important element; the creation of modular repeater hubs that can be maintained remotely with a permanent internal ProfiTrace.

    COMbricks is based on a backplane into which 10 hot swapable repeater modules with 2 channels each can be inserted (for a total of 20 galvanically isolated, transparent segments). Every channel can handle 31 devices and maximum 1200 meter cable length (varies, based on the baudrate).

    The bus redundancy technology of the repeater modules is very advanced. A redundant system with 10 parallel network cables can be built. This architecture provides extremely high availability. Most suppliers only allow 2 cables.

    Typical applications:

    • Repeaters with permanent ProfiTrace
    • Removable drives and motors
    • Star, tree and bus structured networks
    • Motor control centers (drawers)
    • Redundancy for high availability networks
    • EMC vulnerable applications
    • Spur lines
    • Isolation for sensitive devices
