Quick Link QLM600 (Profibus)
The QLM600 Profibus Gateway is an active connection module which can be used in Standalone or ID-NET™ Master Multidata, or Master Synchronized layouts. It provides a fast and efficient way to cable both a Profibus DPV1 network and an ID-NET™ network using standard cables.
It provides separate M12 connectors for Power Supply, Profibus Communication, ID-NET™ Network, External Trigger, Digital I/O and Aux RS232 Communication for configuration of the
reading device. Host communication is provided through the integrated Profibus DPV1 circuitry which connects internally to the reader's Main serial interface (RS232).
ID-NET™ network and power supply signals are provided to the next connected device (IDNET™ Slave), by means of a dedicated M12 connector. However there is not a second ID-NET™ network connector for bus propagation and therefore the QLM600 cannot be used as an ID-NET™ Slave.
The reading device is connected to the QLM600 through a standard 25-pin D-sub connector.
When correctly connected to a Profibus network, the QLM600 acts as a DPV1 slave.
Three rotary switches allow easy manual Profibus Network Addressing selection.
QLM600 has integrated on-board backup memory and therefore supports Backup and Restore procedures for the connected device and relative ID-NET™ network (if used).
