Robust network component for PROFIBUS DP installations

PROFIBUS DP is a high-speed communication bus that has to comply with strict rules concerning spur lines and star networks. The ProfiHub A5 is a perfect economic solution to create reliable start networks in RS 485 DP networks. 

It has the functionality of five galvanic isolated transparent repeaters. This allows network structures with extended spur lines that individually can handle a maximum of 31 devices and a length equal to the main bus. The ProfiHub A5 has the same functionality as the ProfiHub B5.

Reliable, flexible, and object-oriented DP installations

The ProfiHub A5 is essential to obtain better control during maintenance and upgrading of the network.

In order to install the ProfiHub A5 in areas without the need for a separate 24 VDC power supply, this unit is equipped with an integrated 110/230 VAC power supply.

Optional

  • Ground Rail (order code: 16011)
