Set, incl. 2 x PROFIBUS connectors, 90°, screw terminal with PG

Despite its small size, the FLEXtra® twinRepeater is a full PROFIBUS repeater designed for mounting on a DIN rail.

It regenerates the incoming electrical signal on a bus line and retransmits it (bit reshaping and retransmission).
The signals are restored in level, slope, and duty cycle.
The FLEXtra® twinRepeater supports data rates of 9.6 kbps to 12 Mbps and recognizes them automatically.
It can be used for bus extension (up to 1 km with 2 FLEXtra® twinRepeaters), to increase the number of participants, and to expand the system. At the same time, use in MPI networks is possible. As a special application option, the FLEXtra® twinRepeater allows the setup of stubs as separate segments.
The status LEDs integrated for each segment provide a quick overview of the current bus status. Furthermore, the FLEXtra® twinRepeater provides electrical isolation between the two PROFIBUS segments.
In addition, it has a switch to turn off the repeating function. The segments are separated but continue to function for themselves.
PROFIBUS connectors are required for connection to the PROFIBUS cable.

This set contains the PROFIBUS connector 90° diagnosis with proven screw terminal and with PG interface required for connection with a PROFIBUS cable.
