ProfiHub / ProfiSwitch - Multi channel PROFIBUS repeaters

The well-known ProfiHub and ProfiSwitch family is a collection of multi-channel PROFIBUS DP network components to create reliable star/tree networks and long multi-device spur lines. They are deployed in many applications worldwide and available in different varieties to comply with the requirements of the end-user.

ProfiHubs and ProfiSwitches are equipped with galvanic isolated transparent repeaters. Behind each repeater a segment is created that is able to handle 31 devices with a cable length equal to the main bus. Each repeater blocks short circuits and other bus problems.
The ProfiSwitch is also able to customize the baudrate on each channel.

Examples of application areas
bus bullet orange Dynamic spur lines to devices.
Star, tree and bus structured networks.
Pull/Plug motor control centers.
Barrier for non galvanic isolated equipment.
EMC sensitive applications.
Applications with device and cable stress.
