Head Station Type 1C 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 1C an an enhanced type that contains a ProfiTrace core and advanced web server for permanent remote maintenance of the PROFIBUS installation over Ethernet (hardware is identical as a type 1A).

Type 1C monitors 4 PROFIBUS networks

For the monitoring with ProfiTrace OE, repeater modules or slave modules are required to provide PROFIBUS telegrams on the backplane network.

Head Station type 1C is also able to stream live data and OPC tags directly over Ethernet in the ProfiTrace 2 software package. 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.
