The ProfiSwitch X5 outclasses all existing repeaters and hubs in the PROFIBUS market. The transparent hub has the ability to create baudrate customization per channel. A simple rotary switch opens doors to a new landscape with reliable and money saving applications.
Normally, the transmission speed is fixed and becomes an obstacle when PROFIBUS segments require their individual speed setting because of design requirements or bug fixing. The advanced technology of the ProfiSwitch X5 converts the main channel to other transmission speeds and acts as a transparent proxy without disturbing the host system (comparable with PA links). All channels are set to 5 retries for improved reliability. The ProfiSwitch X5 can be used in new applications and existing installations that require baudrate reduction and transformation.
