ABB’s Symphony Plus PROFIBUS Interface Relies on Technology Provided by Softing
Softing, the leading technology provider of PROFIBUS technology, has announced that ABB has chosen Softing to extend the functionality of its Symphony(TM) Plus with PROFIBUS. The new S+ Control PDP800 PROFIBUS Interface is built on FPGA technology and intellectual property (IP) cores provided by Softing and does not require a dedicated ASIC. Furthermore, the IP cores from Softing are designed to achieve ABB’s redundancy concept and to fulfill the stringent timing requirements of PROFIBUS DP V2.
S+ Control PDP800 PROFIBUS Interface module
S+ Control PDP800 PROFIBUS Interface module provides connection between the HPC800 controller and PROFIBUS DP communication channels. This allows for easy integration of intelligent devices such as smart transmitters, actuators and intelligent electronic devices (IEDs). Each device’s resident information can then be used in control strategies and higher level applications.
PDP800 PROFIBUS interface features include:
