Vision 280 and Profibus

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

We have a project, containing two V280. The two PLC's communicate via UniCAN with each other. Both PLC's are equipped with an Ethernet port that was forseen for the communication to the client Scada system. BUT now the client requests to communicate to the V280 via Profibus.

I have been checking around for some type of Profibus converter and have found this one here.

Does anyone has experience with this thing, or can someone request different products that are working reliable, easy, and (ahum...) cheap? I do not want to spend too much time in getting such a thing up and running, but am looking for some type of fool-proof converter.

Again:

- both Visions are connected via UniCAN

- one of the Visions should be connected as Slave to the Profibus network of the client

- finally, we should still be able to make a VPN connection for remote control of the two PLC's.

Thanks for feedback!

Olaf

Dear Olaf,

I used this one in the past and it worked good. HMS-Anybus

On the Scada-side its a Profibus and on the Unitronics-side its a Modbus Master.

So you only have to use the functionblocks for Modbus.

They have also a example for the V120 so it should be no problem to use it with the V280.

Best Regards

Thomas
