INBLOX® Intelligent Repeater

With a logical telegram monitoring

A reliable and undisturbed operation of modern production plants and industrial installations is essential these days. Therefore, a clear structuring and monitoring is not only useful in our eyes, but also urgently needed. As a basic multiple repeater INBLOX® provides a useful restructuring of the fieldbus as well as a basic diagnosis of all segments via LED and a logical telegram analysis via web interface.

Up to five extension module can be connected to the E-head module. The E-head and its intergrated web server uses serveral ways to warn the user in case of network deterioration, e.g. per email or SNMP trap. The intelligent E-head module builds the basis for a permanent PROFIBUS monitoring.

Extension modules for logical evaluation

DP Diag Repeater X1
The module DP Diag Rep X1 with an sub-D output can open one segment. Up to five DP Diag Rep X1 modules can be connected to the E-head module, so that 5 segments per network can be created. The module monitors the logic communication of the master system with a clear malfunction assignment in each segment. An initial simple diagnosis and monitoring are able by LEDs, which show the fieldbus status and the health of the network.

DP Diag Repeater X2
The module DP Diag Rep X2 with two sub-D output can open two segments. Up to five DP Diag Rep X2 modules can be connected to the E-head module, so that 10 segments per network can be created. The module monitors the logic communication of the master system with a clear malfunction assignment in each segment. An initial simple diagnosis and monitoring are able by LEDs, which show the fieldbus status and the health of the network.

DP Diag Repeater X4
The extension module DP Diag Rep X4 is provided with four terminals and can open four segments. Up to five DP Diag Rep X4 modules can be connected to the E-head module, so that 20 segments per network can be created. An initial simple diagnosis and monitoring are able by LEDs, which show the fieldbus status and the health of the network.

Extension modules for logical and physical evaluation

DP Diag+ Repeater
The DP Diag+ Rep extension is provided with a D-subminiature connector and can thus open a segment. Via the web interface the device matrix can be displayed and the relevant diagnoses (error telegrams repeat telegrams etc.) read out. The bus physics, too, is permanently monitored for the first time and can be displayed by a bar chart for the quality characteristics or an oscilloscope recording. The alarm LED displays errors diagnosed during monitoring.

PA Diag+ Module
The PROFIBUS PA Diag+ module is capable of monitoring, analysing and displaying two PA segments at the same time. Like the PROFIBUS DP the PROFIBUS PA analyses and evaluates logic parameters. Besides the error telegrams and repeat telegrams it comprises diagnostic messages of the individual devices and device failures.

Further extension modules

Alarm Module Signal
The alarm module comes with four terminals and is capable of monitoring one INBLOX® module per terminal. In case of alarm the alarm LED lights up until it is cleared manually via the web interface or the reset input is actuated. The web interface of the E-head is used to select the relevant module to show the relevant device and detailed information.

DP Diag Master
The use of a DP Diag Master / DP Diag Twin-Master module for the PROFIBUS DP makes it possible to do FDT/DTM parameterization parallel to all analyses. It is thus possible to parameterize and configure devices and modules via Ethernet as master class 2. This module combines parameter setting and logical monitoring in one module.
