 Profibus-DP Remote Base ControllerCTI-2500-RBC Profibus-DP Remote Base Controller
The 2500-RBC Profibus Remote Base Controller (RBC) allows a CTI 2500 Series or Simatic 505 I/O base to function as a slave node on a DP I/O channel that complies with the PROFIBUS standard. The Remote Base Controller is a direct replacement for the Siemens 505-6870 RBC. Note that the 2500-RBC does not provide for programming the PLC over its serial port. (Ref: CTI-2500-RBC)

Features:
  • Replaces Siemens 505-6870; compatible with Siemens S5 and S7 as well as Series 505 masters
  • Can be used in all currently available CTI and Siemens 4, 8, and 16 slot bases
  • Supports communication speeds from 9.6 Kbaud (maximum cable distance per segment: 1200 m) up to 12 Mbaud (maximum cable distance per segment: 100m)
  • Supports all CTI and Siemens discrete and analog I/O modules
  • GSD file is provided with the RBC to allow configuration by the COM PROFI
  • LED display for error codes and station address
