EasyConn PB - PROFIBUS Connector
The High End PROFIBUS Connector EasyConn PB from profichip provides all test functions speeding up implementation and trouble shooting. Four LEDs, which are visible from both sides, indicate bus- and device-status: the yellow LED shows the voltage supply of the device (PWR), the green LED the bus-activity (TxD); another yellow LED informs whe-ther the termination is switched OFF or ON (Term). The red LED indicates whether there is a wrong termination resistance or a false surge impedance that influences the bus transfer (ERR). The integrated EasyConn Controller works with a baudrate of up to 12 Mbaud. Even at this rate the power consumption is very low, so that the PROFIBUS-participants are strained at the minimum. The connector with 90Â° cable outlet provides easy access to the integrated PU/diagnosis socket; no additional hub is required.
The full metal case ensures high noise immunity. The switchable termination resistances which are accessable from both sides are activated by the plug with slide switches. In this way, testing of the profibus communication can be executed without removing plugs or cable, the cable ducts are equipped with transparent cover so the correct correlation of the bus cords is visible. Also under field conditions, easy connection of stiff or flexible bus cable is supported by integrated cutting-clamps. All parts of the plug are designed as screw-saving.
