Fieldbus and PC interfaces
Expert Vibro can be connected to a network via a LAN interface or to a PC via a USB connection. For field bus connections, the device has two PROFIBUS DP Slave interfaces, a Modbus TCP and a Modbus RTU, and a user-configurable CAN interface.
The interfaces can alternatively be used to connect any other measurement equipment and sensors via RS232/485 ports. Expert Vibro is integrated into PROFIBUS via a GSD file. An option is available to switch operating mode to redundant (according to PNO 2.212 V1.2) PROFIBUS. The LAN and RS485 interface can also exchange data via the Modbus TCP/RTU protocol.
Expert Vibro supports this operation as a Modbus master or slave. The LAN interface transmits all data from measurements and software channels online and at high speed across the intranet or internet. Any networked PC can access the device via this interface. To measure vibrations from multiple channels, multiple Expert Vibro devices can be synchronized with each other.
