Design Range

Torque Rating Range: Profibus DP field unit can be fitted to all MX and QX/QXM actuators

Features & Benefits
  • Reduced maintenance and related operating costs via intuitive software that proactively identifies maintenance needs, preventing unscheduled shutdowns
  • Much shorter commissioning — as little as 20 minutes per device
  • High speed, real time communication up to 1.5 mbits/sec
  • Master-to-slave communication
  • Analog & digital input and output function blocks
  • Data exchange - cyclic I/O data and field unit device reports diagnostics
  • Bus powered for 9-32 VDC and 15 mA per actuator
  • Redundant PB_DP with either system or flying master communications
  • Complies with EMC requirements to European Directive 2004/108/EC and vibration/seismic requirements to Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC

Redundant Communication
Full redundancy to Profibus specification with </= 500 ms switchover. Also provides support for NAMUR NE-107.
