DP/DP coupler

The DP/DP coupler connects two PROFIBUS DP networks with one another and enables data transmission between the masters of the two DP networks.

The maximum size of the transmitted data is 244 bytes of input data and 244 bytes of output data. The DP/DP coupler is configured within the hardware configurator. A GSD file or external parameterization software is not necessary.

  • Exchange of up to 244 bytes of input and 244 bytes of output data between two PROFIBUS networks
  • Redundant power supply
  • Electrical isolation between the PROFIBUS networks
  • Setting of the PROFIBUS addresses using DIP switches or software
  • PROFIBUS-DP up to 12 Mbps

There is no separate GSD file for the DP/DP coupler. The DP/DP coupler can be selected directly in the hardware configurator of the Simatic Manager or TIA-Portal under the Siemens order number "6ES7 158-0AD01-0XA0 DP/DP coupler, edition 2" and inserted into the project.
