Brad® SST Communication Module for Rockwell

Brad® SST Communication Module for Rockwell
Brad® SST™ backplane communication module connects your Rockwell
ControlLogix® controller to PROFIBUS networks.
Leader for 15 years in connectivity for Rockwell ControlLogix® controllers, Brad® SST™
communication modules are the perfect choice for a wide range of applications including
factory automation, process control and complex machines.
Brad® SST™ PB3 PROFIBUS module connects Rockwell ControlLogix® controller to
PROFIBUS networks. Each module has a communication port that act as PROFIBUSDP Master and/or Slave protocols to exchange data with other PROFIBUS compatible
Brad® SST™ PB3 module is delivered with its “Add-On-Profile” (AOP) for easy
integration into the ControlLogix® system using the RSLogix 5000 software. The data
transfer from the Brad® SST™ module to the ControlLogix® processor supports 2
modes; a “direct mode” allowing mapping of PROFIBUS data in I/O processor image
(496 input bytes / 496 output bytes) and a “pagging mode” allowing access to 1984
input bytes and 1968 output bytes of PROFIBUS data from user-defined data space set
up into Logix CPU memory.

Save your time, the Brad® SST™ module doesn’t require any ladder logic programming
to be used. The configuration is created using Windows engineering console software
connected via RLL (Remote Link Library) functionality allowing a remote access to the
Brad® SST™ module for the configuration and the diagnostics through Rockwell network
architectures (Ethernet/ControlNet/DeviceNet).
The Brad® SST™ engineering console allows the user to define the network parameters,
PROFIBUS devices and the cyclic data exchanges. The Brad® SST™ software package
includes diagnostic tools to help with the commissioning and monitoring of the
PROFIBUS connection. Thus, the user-friendly tools are available for controlling the
communication in commissioning phase (PROG mode). This same information is also
available in production (RUN mode) through status words making it possible for the user
to manage the execution of the control application in its ladder logic
