The high-end PROFIBUS Connector EasyConn PB from profichip has various features that speed up installation and troubleshooting:
Status LEDS which are visible from both sides, indicate bus and device status
Piggy-back connector with 90 degree cable outlet provides easy access to the integrated PU/diagnosis socket so that no additional hub is required.
The full metal case ensures high noise immunity.
The switchable termination resistances which are accessable from both sides are activated by the plug with slide switches. In this way, testing of the profibus communication can be executed without removing plugs or cable, the cable ducts are equipped with transparent cover so the correct correlation of the coloured cable cores are visible.
TxD (Green LED) – Shows bus activity (TxD). It sees if communications is active.
TERM (Yellow LED 2) – Informs whether the termination is switched OFF or ON.
ERR (Red) – Indicates whether there is a wrong termination resistance or a false surge impedance that influences the bus transfer. Connect a network analyser to diagnose the faults.
The 90 degree PROFIBUS connector is the most popular seller out of the EasyConn range as most devices are built to accommodate this type of connection. It allows for easy connection of PROFIBUS test equipment though its piggy-back connector.
