Repeaters

PROFIBUS compact repeater

The patented PROFIBUS compact repeater is a full PROFIBUS repeater that is versatile due to its very small size. It enables transfer rates of 9.6 kbps to 12 Mbps.
The transmission signals are regenerated by the repeater and re-sent (bit-reshaping and retransmission) so that faults in the line are largely eliminated.
The PROFIBUS compact repeater is a great alternative to conventional repeaters for a large number of applications, both technically and in terms of price. It can be used for bus extension (up to 1 km with 2 PROFIBUS compact repeaters), to increase the number of participants, and to expand the system. Use in MPI networks is also possible. As a special application option, the PROFIBUS compact repeater allows the setup of spur lines as separate segments. For this it can be plugged directly into the PG connection of an existing PROFIBUS connector.
Due to the compact design, no additional space is needed in the control cabinet, as the PROFIBUS compact repeater can be used instead of a PROFIBUS connector and is simply plugged into a participant on the PROFIBUS network. Furthermore, no separate power supply is required, because the PROFIBUS compact repeater uses the 5 V power supply, which every PROFIBUS device makes available for the terminating resistor. The PROFIBUS compact repeater establishes a potential separation between the two PROFIBUS segments.
The integrated status LEDs provide a quick overview on the current bus status.

FLEXtra® multiRepeater 4-way, 6-way PROFIBUS repeater

The FLEXtra® multiRepeater is a multi-PROFIBUS repeater designed for mounting on a DIN rail.
It regenerates the incoming electrical signal on a bus line and retransmits it (bit reshaping and retransmission).
The signals are restored in level, slope, and duty cycle.
The multiRepeater supports data rates of 9.6 kbps to 12 Mbps and recognizes them automatically.
It can be used for bus extension, to increase the number of participants, and to expand the system. At the same time, use in MPI networks is possible.
As a special application option, the multiRepeater allows the setup of a star network with independent segments.
The status LEDs integrated for each segment provide a quick overview of the current bus status. Furthermore, the FLEXtra® multiRepeater provides electrical isolation between the PROFIBUS segments. In addition, it has a DIP switch for switching off the individual segments and a switch for turning off all segments. The segments are separated but continue to function for themselves.
For connection to the PROFIBUS cable, PROFIBUS connectors are required.

FLEXtra® twinRepeater, PROFIBUS repeater

Despite its small size, the FLEXtra® twinRepeater is a full PROFIBUS repeater designed for mounting on a DIN rail.
It regenerates the incoming electrical signal on a bus line and retransmits it (bit reshaping and retransmission).
The signals are restored in level, slope, and duty cycle.
The FLEXtra® twinRepeater supports data rates of 9.6 kbps to 12 Mbps and recognizes them automatically.
It can be used for bus extension (up to 1 km with 2 FLEXtra® twinRepeaters), to increase the number of participants, and to expand the system. At the same time, use in MPI networks is possible. As a special application option, the FLEXtra® twinRepeater allows the setup of spur lines as separate segments.
The status LEDs integrated for each segment provide a quick overview of the current bus status. Furthermore, the FLEXtra® twinRepeater provides electrical isolation between the two PROFIBUS segments.
In addition, it has a switch to turn off the repeating function. The segments are separated but continue to function for themselves.
For connection to the PROFIBUS cable, PROFIBUS connectors are required (also available in a set).
