Softing Profibus PA
PROFIBUS PA meets the special requirements of process automation. These include intrinsic safety and bus-powered devices, for example. PA communication is based on the same bus physics as Foundation fieldbus H1. It uses the acyclic DPV1 services and is embedded in a higher-level PROFIBUS DP system.
|PROFIBUS PA Pre-certification Test|
|During the preliminary test, the MoTest of the accredited testing
laboratory will be carried out on your field device. You will be
provided with the test result. One of our fieldbus experts will
evaluate the test result and support you during error analysis. The
services connected with the preliminary test comprise 20 hours of
testing and support. Additional testing or support will be invoiced

The new Fieldbus Kit (FBK) from Softing AG enables existing HART devices to be converted quickly and easily to FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 and PROFIBUS PA.
To make it easier for HART device manufacturers to enter the fieldbus market, Softing's FBK offers a profitable alternative to conventional stack integration that is particularly well suited for small to medium quantities. The use of the same software architecture ensures investment security in case of a later change to classical stack integration on a separate platform. The required FBK schematics are available on request.

|PROFIBUS PA Protocol Software|
The software-based end-to-end solution for process automation devices. This compact protocol software is optimized for 16-bit low-power microcontrollers. It permits the production of intrinsically safe field devices.
The scope of functions is adapted to the typical requirements of field devices. By means of a "function block shell", you or we on your behalf, respectively, can integrate function block applications by standard function blocks.

|PROFIBUS DP+PA Protocol Analyzer|
The buscheck PROFIBUS Protocol Analyzer is an indispensable tool for analyzing and optimizing communication in PROFIBUS networks. It is ideally suited for continuously monitoring a network, detecting hidden errors early on, optimizing data throughput and analyzing configuration errors.

|PROFIBUS PA Diagnostic Monitor|
The Profibus PA Diagnostic Monitor, BC-230-PB, is used to examine the operation of a live Profibus-PA segment without interfering with its operation. It is powered by the fieldbus so that no battery or external power source is required. The monitor is useable also in hazardous areas. It is intended for maintenance personnel to verify segment operation or to troubleshoot an errant segment.
