Profibus-DP I/O BusWorks 900PB Series Modules
Acromag’s BusWorks 900PB series is a high-performance line of network-ready analog and discrete I/O modules. They feature universal input/output ranges and an intelligent microcontroller to provide extreme flexibility and powerful monitoring and control capabilities. Select from a variety of analog and discrete I/O modules to meet your application requirements.
Each module provides a direct network interface for your I/O signals. Unlike “block I/O” devices that combine large, expensive processor blocks with snap-on I/O terminal blocks, 900PB modules handle the network interface and I/O processing in one, compact multi-channel module. This space-saving approach is very cost-effective for systems that need to add a small quantity of I/O channels at existing control sites or network to new remote sites.
To ensure high performance, modules feature an advanced microcontroller techology. On-board address switches and automatic baud rate detection (up to12 Mbps) simplify installation. Four-way isolation prevents ground loops and increases noise immunity. Indicator LEDs and self-diagnostics help to quickly catch problems.

Profibus-DP Analog I/O
Multi-channel units with flexible I/O ranges. These units provide an isolated network interface for voltage, current and temperature sensor signals or for non-networked controller signals. High-resolutions, low noise, A/D converters deliver high accuracy and reliability.
Profibus-DP Digital I/O
These modules provide an isolated Profibus-DP network interface for twelve discrete input and/or output channels. The outputs provide direct on/off, high/low, or open/close control of industrial devices. The inputs sense the status of motors, pumps, valves and other equipment.
Profibus-DP Software Support
Profibus-DP networks offer several advantages. They are proven, fast (up to 12Mbps without fiber optic cable), deterministic, and ideal for transmitting analog or discrete data. I/O devices are also easy to install and maintain. More than 1000 organizations worldwide, plus the ProfibusTrade Organization (PTO), help nurture a growing user base, introduce new products, and provide technical support for this network technology.
