Connecting PCs with Profibus and controllers with databases via Industrial Ethernet

26.03.2009
The Siemens Industry Automation Division has developed two new communications processors for connecting PCs and S7-300 controllers to Profibus and Industrial Ethernet, respectively.

Simatic Net CP 5711 is an external adapter that links commercially available PCs to Profibus via their on-board USB 2.0 port. The Simatic Net CP 343-1 ERPC expansion module connects Simatic-S7-300 controllers with databases via Industrial-Ethernet.


The Simatic Net CP 5711 communications processor supports all MPI and Profibus communications services up to a rate of 12 Megabit/second, for example DP Master/DP Slave, S7/S5 and PG/OP. The module has a 24 Volt power supply connection in case the USB interface of the PC cannot supply sufficient power.

The Profibus and USB connectors can be locked mechanically so that cables are securely connected in a typical commissioning and servicing environment. The new communications processor can optionally be mounted on a DIN rail.

Simatic Net CP 343-1 ERPC is used for directly connecting Simatic-S7-300 controllers to database systems via Industrial Ethernet. This enables controllers to be supplied with data or jobs directly from databases on the MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) management level.

In addition to the connection with other automation systems, such as Simatic controllers, PCs or control systems, the CP allows for direct linking of databases, e.g. Oracle, MySQL, MS-SQL and DB2 using optional software packages.

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
