    Profibus Network

    FrancisEdson

      I have a drive with Profibus network, I can connect to the PI Server through a Profibus network. Does the PI Server have a drive for Profibus DP?

          Hi Francis,

           

          Do you mean to ask whether PI can interface with Profibus DP? We dot not have a native Profibus DP interface, but the same result could be achieved using an intermediate OPC server and the PI Interface for OPC DA.

            I guess you want to read data from motor drives or remote IO which are connected via Profibus, normally you should have a PLC linked to these motor drives or remote IO which would be easier to interface with. This is normally how I read data from devices connected in profibus only.
