The PROFIBUS PCI and PXI one-port interfaces connect PC-based controllers to PROFIBUS industrial networks as powerful masters or slaves. The PROFIBUS C Series module provides master and slave connectivity to embedded real-time programmable automation controllers (PACs) such as CompactRIO and Single-board RIO. NI PROFIBUS interfaces include an NI LabVIEW driver for human machine interface (HMI) and SCADA applications. You can perform PROFIBUS device automated test using these interfaces.
With LabVIEW Real-Time support, you can add CompactRIO, PXI, or PC systems as slave or master nodes to a PROFIBUS industrial network. Featuring more than 20 million installed nodes, PROFIBUS is one of the leading industrial networks for reliably connecting programmable logic controllers (PLCs), I/O, sensors, and drives over long distances in industrial environments.
