Retrofitting an existing system with Ethernet can be expensive and complicated. Often old Siemens PLCs of type S7-300 or S7-400 are still in use, which do not have a Ethernet or RFC 1006 interface on board. They can be retrofitted with Siemens CPs (343 or CP443). However, a free slot in the S7 rack is required for this. Furthermore, the system configuration must be adapted.
The solution to these problems is simple: Our Profibus/MPI adapter.
Plug it on, configure it quickly and easily via web-interface: Done!
