MFI-PBM – Module Master Profibus-DP

This module has the purpose to give remote PROFIBUS DP and PROFIBUS DP-V1 connection that meets the EN 50170 standard. That is, a PROFIBUS slave from any manufacturer (Allen Bradley, Siemens, GE) can communicate with the MFI-PBM module from Fertron and leave the data available in the memory of the MCPU-1 module to control the desired application.
The MFI-PBM module is configured and parameterized by the master through its configurator software (CitrinoTools) and the slave equipment GSD files. This GSD file contains information for all I/O modules. For example, the PROFIBUS MFI-PBS slave module has a GSD file (FTR0B2A.gsd) available on the Fertron website for download. industrial. The mechanical part of this transmitter is a derivation of strain gage resistance pressure transducer technology, built with a ceramic diaphragm that provides robustness, accuracy and reliability. The electronic part was born with the 4/20mA analog technology, incorporated the digital microprocessors transforming this transmitter into an intelligent product. Always encompassing electronic, mechanical and digital communication innovations, today this transmitter is the basis of process control.
