The PB Diagnostic Plug can be connected to any Profibus node continuously monitoring the complete running data traffic for typical communication errors. Arising errors are directly indicated by integrated status LEDs and can be reported through the potentialfree alarm contact to superordinate control systems. Thus it is possible to reduce failures and to avoid unexpected plant shutdowns.
Service and maintenance costs can be planned more proactively. The baud rate is manually set via the integrated rotary switch. Automatic decoding of the baud rate is also possible
