• Integrates a single DP-Slave into PROFINET network
    • For direct mounting on DP interface
    • Compatible to any PROFIBUS node
    • Automatic GSDML file generation from GSD file for PROFINET import
    • Works in accordance with PI-organization’s proxy guideline



netLINK PROXY integrates a PROFIBUS DP slave into any superordinate PROFINET network. As connector the device is plugged directly onto the PROFIBUS DP interface of the DP Slave and connects to the PROFINET network via the RJ45 socket.

On PROFINET side netLINK behaves like an ordinary IO-Device. The DP Slave’s process data are mapped in accordance with the present PI-organisation’s guideline into the PROFINET slot/subslot addressing model.

Commissioning is done via the Ethernet port with either a direct connection to the PC or if already installed and during run time via a PROFINET switch. netLINK PROXY is configured with the FDT/DTM based planning, configuration and diagnostic tool

With only a few steps netLINK is in operation. In case there is no slave GSD file available, a scan function is able to identify the slave on PROFIBUS. After the configuration and the I/O process data length is known, converts the parameters automatically into a standardized GSDML file. This file imports to any PROFINET controller configuration utility and gets netLINK working without effort.

The netLINK Proxy is supplied by 24 V. During mounting the voltage can be tapped comfortably from the DP-Slave and be led to the 2-pin COMBICON connector. The short distance on PROFIBUS makes a terminator unnecessary.

netLINK PROXY – a cost-efficient and handy alternative to redevelopments to get existing DP devices integrated into the PROFINET world.
