“UNIQUE” PROFIBUS TRAINING DEVICE

procentec_Blackbox WEB image_maskedSIO4DP is claimed to be the first dedicated PROFIBUS training device. It’s a simple PROFIBUS slave with 4 bits input and 4 bits output and its unique feature is that it emulates bus failures and I/O patterns. It can also generate a bus fault by physically removing itself from PROFIBUS after a certain time. The SIO4DP could be used for certified PROFIBUS Engineer training, PROFIBUS troubleshooting training, training kits and demo setups. It is a fully-functional I/O module and can also be used in real factory applications.  It fits perfectly with tools like ProfiTrace and is ideal for educational and testing environments says PROCENTEC because it allows engineers to practice off-line so they can act more appropriately when a real bus fault occurs. Special purchase prices are available for education and training centers.  PROCENTEC
