The BradCommunications™ SST™ PROFIBUS® multi-slave interface emulates or monitor 1 to 125 PROFIBUS DP devices on one physical PROFIBUS connection. PROFIBUS® DP Multi-Slave Interface Features • Monitor up to 125 devices For Emulating or Monitoring PROFIBUS DP Devices • Avoids 244 bytes in and 244 bytes out limitation • Connects as a passive station, does not affect existing network traffic • View input and output data for each slave • View slave diagnostic and parameterization data for each slave • • • Emulate up to 125 devices • Virtually any PROFIBUS DP slave device (e.g. drives, motors, I/O) can be emulated to any PROFIBUS master including DCS, PLC and PC control ™ • Use with SST PICS Simulation software and other third party simulation software • Several DP Class 1 masters can communicate to one SST PROFIBUS multi-slave card Ease of use • Minimal set up and configuration required • Set up a fully loaded network emulation in just a few steps using the SST PROFIBUS configuration tool Communicate with several DP Class 1 masters using only one SST multi-slave interface card Software Tools Included • Configuration tool • OPC server • DDE server OS and Drivers Supported • Microsoft® 32-bit driver (Windows® NT4, 2000, XP) • Open, documented memory map interface with example C source code and Windows 32-bit DLLs for custom driver development Overview The BradCommunications™ SST™ PROFIBUS® DP multi-slave interface card allows a PCI bus computer to emulate or monitor 1 to 125 PROFIBUS DP slave devices using only one physical connection. Network traffic is not affected when this interface card is used to monitor other nodes. Applications The BradCommunications SST PROFIBUS DP multi-slave interface card can be used to: • Connect a PCI bus computer running HMI or operator interface software to PROFIBUS DP • I/O emulation • Network monitoring • Test a fully loaded network of PROFIBUS DP masters and other PROFIBUS products Benefits Minimal to no impact on I/O scan time • Since the card listens passively on the network, an HMI system can monitor all I/O on the network without affecting the scan time Ethernet alternative • HMI users can pass large amounts of data without impacting the network or PLC scan time, or any additional cost for Ethernet connectivity No devices or wiring required • Have a completely functional PROFIBUS network of slaves contained in one card in minutes • Using simulation to duplicate the behavior of the actual process and I/O on the plant floor will identify and correct network bottlenecks before they become expensive plant-floor problems • Quickly differentiate between wiring, devices, and network problems by comparing real-world results with the emulation Profibus® DP Multi-Slave Application Stories Network Specifications Emulating I/O Reduced Commissioning Time When a large power generation company decided to modernize its coal conveyor system, Brock Solutions, a large automation engineering firm, was brought in to develop and test the new tracking system. The system, which must run 24/7 to generate electricity, uses ABB PLCs and PROFIBUS DP I/O. To ensure high availability and minimize downtime, simulation software was used to test the coal conveyors and control gates which route and divert coal to different locations. ™ ® Protocol PROFIBUS Slave DP-V0 Data Rate All PROFIBUS data rates up to 12 Mbps Cable Connector Isolation Belden 3079A ® Brad Harrison 85-001 PVR2 conductor with shield, UL-listed 5-pin Phoenix connector internally connected to DB9 DB9 female connector Brad Harrison Diagnostic D-Sub connector part number: MA9D01-42 1000 V Hardware Specifications ™ The BradCommunications SST PROFIBUS multi-slave card was used to emulate the many PROFIBUS DP slaves. This enabled Brock Solutions to thoroughly test the security and emergency logic repeatly without risk. By reducing commissioning time, the power generating company was able to use its system with minimal delays, making for a smooth transition to start-up. Vigorous Testing Leads to Improved Product Development A leading multi-national developer and manufacturer of industrial products required a tool to test its PROFIBUS DP master and slave products. To determine the products’ capabilities and limitations on a fully loaded PROFIBUS network, stress tests were setup to evaluate the maximum for the baud rate, the number of slaves, and I/O supported. I/O mappings also needed to be tested to ensure what was read/written on the network was written in the host memory mapped to the product. The BradCommunications SST PROFIBUS multi-slave card allowed the company to successfully complete the stress tests and verify the products’ stability and compatibility on a PROFIBUS network. By emulating 125 PROFIBUS DP slaves, the company was able to work with different GSD files and device types without actually having them physically there. Understanding the products’ capabilities avoided costly future hardware and firmware changes.
