Head Station Type 1B with ProfiTrace OE

0094The Head Station is the primary element of ComBricks and has to be inserted in the most left slot of the fixed backplane socket. It schedules the interaction between all modules and provides data storage and an Ethernet interface for the user.

Type 1B is an enhanced type that contain a ProfiTrace core for monitoring 2 PROFIBUS networks and an advanced web server for permanent remote maintenance of the PROFIBUS installation over Ethernet (hardware is identical to the Type 1A).
For monitoring repeater modules or slave modules are required to provide PROFIBUS telegrams on the backplane network.

Through the ProfiTrace 2 software package, OPC tags can be directly streamed from the Head Station type 1B. ProfiTrace 2 will run with full monitoring functionality and the user can benefit from its features.

The Head Station provides power to all modules through its redundant power supply.
