Deliver Data from Your Profibus Master to an ASCII Based System or Controller
The 460PBSA moves data between a Profibus Master device and Serial ASCII.
Its a great tool to implement your Profibus controller into your PC or embedded applications that support raw ASCII data.
How Does it Work?
Up to 244 bytes of Profibus data can be mapped to and from 10 slots in your Profibus Master device. The data segments can be converted to ASCII and concatenated into a string we deliver you your ASCII controller or logger. If you need to command the Profibus Master, an incoming ASCII string can be parsed and each segment can be directed to user a defined IO data location.
Need to scale your data or manipulate it with other math functions? The 460PBSA allows you to add scaling to any data, apply simple math operations, add alarming and control the request speeds of your Master device.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460PBSA provides an option to connect your Profibus controller with an ASCII based controller. While there are certainly a number of other companies offering solutions like ours, there is no one who provides the level of support and service that you receive from RTA.
When you call, a live person answers the phone. When you talk with sales, you will get honest answers and recommendations, even if that means recommending someone else’s solution. When you get support, it is from an engineer who had a hand in the product’s development, and that doesn’t require a ticket or 24 hour wait. We are unashamed of the fact that we are a smaller company because, that means, you mean more to us.
“I challenged a customer to get it working by the time I got back from his break room with a Coke and he indeed had it working when I got back. He then said, "It’s worth twice the price!"”

“Everything seems to be working as we imagined. Thanks for the great response time. I did not see any way to save the configuration other than screen shots, but the configuration did not get lost in the update. Thanks again, and you were a pleasure to work with.”
