Process automation in the industrial sector (such as mechanical engineering
and plant construction) primarily relies on the use of field buses. Our
protocol converter enables data to be transmitted from the field bus (controller,
sensors, actuators ) to the superior control center.
You want to connect a Profibus DP master to
another communication device (master or slave)...
This specific application can be implemented with our ipConvPS protocol
converter which is capable of using the Profibus DPV0 protocol to communicate
with the Profibus. Implementation requires the Profibus distant terminal to be
set up as master. Selected
protocols are provided for communication with other devices (master or slave).
The IPCOMM proprietary Profibus DPV0 application layer enables the
transmission of data such as quality descriptors and time stamps. Using the
application layer requires however that the Profibus distant terminal is also
capable of sending and receiving information over this protocol.
A DIN rail mounted Embedded PC (HECPS) or 19" Industrial PC
(IPC191V3 19" 1U) with Profibus interface may be used as a suitable hardware platform.

You want to connect a MODBUS telecontrol or
automation device (slave) to the control station (master)...
The ipConvLite or ipConvprotocol converter allows the connecting of MODBUS
field devices. Selected
are provided for ipConvLite to enable communication with the
Reference projects: ISKI, PEMEX, Madero
You want to connect other field buses to a
superior control station...
Other field buses such as Profibus DPV1, Profibus FMS, 3964R, Sinec-H1 can be
connected using our universally compatible ipConv protocol converter, as long
as there are appropriate field bus interfaces for the hardware platforms
(MEC) oder (IPC191V3 19" 1U).
Reference projects: Project CFE, Burfell, NPC San Manuel, Labrador, I-SHAPE, FSC HECHI
You want to connect different field buses...
The ipConv protocol converter is also capable of linking different
field buses, for instance MODBUS and Sinec-H1.
