The only available device with powerful 3-in-1 functionality: PROFIBUS DP slave device – ProfiTrace busmonitor – Modular repeater

The ComBricks PROFIBUS DP slave module has considerable added value for the installation. It is the only available device with powerful 3-in-1 functionality: PROFIBUS DP slave device – ProfiTrace busmonitor – Modular repeater.

The slave device enables the largest multiple cross gateways between PROFINET and PROFIBUS modules which are placed in the backplane. Simultaneously, it permanently monitors the segment/network and acts as a repeater when it is used in combination with other communication modules.

Slave device (gateways and remote I/O)

It’s the component of choice to establish communication between multiple PROFINET and PROFIBUS controllers that manage their own specific network. The gateway works similarly to regular DP/DP and PN/DP couplers. The data area between the modules is customized with the help of pre-defined blocks from the GSD files. COMbricks has the advantage that 10 PROFINET / PROFIBUS modules can exchange information. The configuration steps are the same as any other PROFIBUS slave device. By means of the GSD file, the respective I/O modules have to be selected in the configuration tool, after which the PLC can make the I/Os available for the software application and the network.


The repeater works as any COMbricks PROFIBUS repeater. With the integrated ProfiTrace and the enhanced RS 485 signals, it is the best partner you can get for extended and reliable segments.
