Is your PROFIBUS network located in a harsh environment with for instance high temperatures or vibrations and do you need 24/7 monitoring of your network? The ComBricks HE+ is a robust device, which makes it ideal for these harsh environments. The system unites network components with permanent monitoring and ProfiTrace.
ComBricks HE+ is a modular system that allows a mix of automation components. Additional repeater modules with integrated scope functionality can be connected on the right side of the Head Station. This way, the condition of a maximum of four separate PROFIBUS installations can be remotely inspected with ProfiTrace OE.
Compared to the first ComBricks system, the ComBricks HE+ has a robust stainless steel housing, that protects the electronics inside the device against higher disturbances.
Resistant to vibrations
The ComBricks HE+ is ILAC-MRA vibration approved. This means that the system is resistant to vibrations that may occur when the unit is used on trains, planes, boats or trucks.
ComBricks HE+ is based on an internal backplane, which can hold up to two physical modules next to the Head station. Each physical module consists of two scope repeater modules joined as one housing. Every channel can handle 31 PROFIBUS devices and a maximum of 1200 m cable length. ComBricks HE+ also provides a better interconnection between the individual modules, thanks to metal clamps to lock them together.
