1In Fieldbus Mode, the Diagnostic Monitor is powered by the fieldbus and draws approximately 9.4 mA of current from the segment (depending on bus voltage and ambient temperature)
2Vpp = Volts (Peak-to-Peak); excessive noise adjacent to the fieldbus frequency (FF) band will prevent the Diagnostic Monitor from reading the fieldbus sata and thus reduce functionality
3Display update speed is impaired below -10 °C

|Interface for Providing an Access Point to Test PROFIBUS Networks if the D-sub Connectors have no Service Socket or if the Devices are Connected via Terminal Block|
Provides an access point for testing PROFIBUS networks if the D-sub connectors have no service socket or if the stations are connected via terminal block.
The service interface is top hat rail mounted. An external 24 VDC power source is required for power supply to the terminating resistor in the PROFIBUS connector included in the package. The service interface can thus be used as an active bus termination at the beginning or end of the bus. If the PLC allows dropping and adding bus stations on the live bus, the service interface offers the possibility to exchange the first and last bus stations without causing problems on the bus. Application example:
Included in Package
PBMB adapter and 90° angled PROFIBUS connector with switchable terminating resistor, strain relief and screw terminal technology.
|Interface for Providing an Access Point to Test PROFIBUS Networks With M12 Connectors|
Provides an access point for testing PROFIBUS networks with M12 connectors.
The service interface is inserted between two bus stations. When not in use, the service output of the T piece is closed with an end cap. At baud rates of 1.5 Mbit/s or higher, use the supplied cable to ensure that the required minimum distance between bus stations is maintained. Application example:
Included in Package
T piece (protection class IP68) with end cap and a 1 m DP cable fitted with a male/female M12 connector on each end.
