Function: U-P6-B6

The base is used in combination with an upper part, the IPT*-FP read/write station.

The device is operated as a slave on the PROFIBUS DP. The device makes available the complete read/write functionality. Up to 32 bytes are transmitted per cycle. Of these, up to 7 double words, each with 32 bits, are available to the user.

The address is set and the terminating resistor for the bus is connected via DIP switches.

While the bus termination is switched on, the subsequent subscribers which are connected to the terminals (P, N out) are disconnected from the bus.
