Rinstrum 1400 Profibus Module Launch

Release date: 28 Apr 09

For complete integration of Rinstrum devices* onto a Profibus network

The Rinstrum 1400 Profibus-DP module allows for Rinstrum indicators (*5000 Series and R400 Series) and displays to be connected onto a Profibus-DP network. The 1400 translates the data from the indicators into the Profibus format. This allows the Profibus master to effectively extract status and weight data for example from the indicators and send commands to the indicators. The data slots are fully configurable.
  • Input Data – Indicator status, current weight, I/O status etc.
  • Output Command Data – remote key functions, targets, flight etc.

Check out the Application Note describing the connection of two R400 indicators onto a Profibus network in a basic water treatment plant example.
