The PROFIBUS connector 90° diagnostics LED is equipped with a proven and reliable screw terminal.

It is quickly mounted and has integrated, connectable terminating resistors.
For improved EMC compatibility, the housing of the plug is metalized.
Using the PROFIBUS connector diagnosis, a PROFIBUS network can be established in which the user can at any time check the state of the bus system at a glance.
The three built-in LEDs with the easily distinguished colors blue, green, and orange indicate the most important states of the PROFIBUS network at each station. The state of the terminating resistor (orange), whether bus activity is present (green), and whether the addressed participant is participating in the bus traffic (blue) are displayed.
In this way you can immediately recognize error states such as bus interrupts, missing or incorrectly connected terminating resistors, and malfunctioning or failed bus participants.
The PROFIBUS connector works in the extended ambient temperature range of -25 °C to +85 °C.


Exits on 2 versions : WITH PG and WITHOUT PG

  • 3 status LEDs to indicate “bus operation,” “participant is sending,” “terminating resistor inserted”
  • Metalized housing

PROFIBUS Compact Repeater

PROFIBUS compact repeater

The patented PROFIBUS compact repeater is a full PROFIBUS repeater that is versatile due to its very small size. It enables transfer rates of 9.6 kbps to 12 Mbps.


  • Alternative to conventional PROFIBUS repeaters
  • No additional space required in the control cabinet
  • Can be used for bus extension or as a spur line
  • Increase the number of participants
  • System expansion
  • Can also be used in MPI networks
  • Status LEDs
  • No 24 V supply required
  • 5 V power supply directly from the PROFIBUS terminal, making it usable on every PROFIBUS device

The transmission signals are regenerated by the repeater and re-sent (bit-reshaping and retransmission) so that faults in the line are largely eliminated.
The PROFIBUS compact repeater is a great alternative to conventional repeaters for a large number of applications, both technically and in terms of price. It can be used for bus extension (up to 1 km with 2 PROFIBUS compact repeaters), to increase the number of participants, and to expand the system. Use in MPI networks is also possible. As a special application option, the PROFIBUS compact repeater allows the setup of stubs as separate segments. For this it can be plugged directly into the PG connection of an existing PROFIBUS connector.
Due to the compact design, no additional space is needed in the control cabinet, as the PROFIBUS compact repeater can be used instead of a PROFIBUS connector and is simply plugged into a participant on the PROFIBUS network. Furthermore, no separate power supply is required, because the PROFIBUS compact repeater uses the 5 V power supply, which every PROFIBUS device makes available for the terminating resistor. The PROFIBUS compact repeater establishes a potential separation between the two PROFIBUS segments.
The integrated status LEDs provide a quick overview on the current bus status.

Note1: TX Fault is open collector/drain output which should be pulled up externally with a 4.7K~ 10KΩ resistor on the host board to supply <VccT+0.3V or VccR+0.3V. When high, this output indicates a laser fault of some kind. Low indicates normal operation. In the low state, the output will be pulled to <0.8V.
Note2: TX Disable input is used to shut down the laser output per the state table below. It is pulled up within the module with a 4.7K~10KΩ resistor. 1)Low(0~0.8V): Transmitter on; 2)Between(0.8V and 2V): Undefined; 3)High (2.0~ VccT): Transmitter Disabled; 4)Open: Transmitter Disabled

Mod-DEF(0) is grounded by the module to indicate that the module is present. Mod-DEF(1) is clock line of two wire serial interface for optional serial ID. Mod-DEF(2) is data line of two wire serial interface for optional serial ID.
Note4: LOS (Loss of signal) is an open collector/drain output which should be pulled up externally with a 4.7K~10KΩ resistor on the host board to supply <VccT+0.3V or VccR+0.3V. When high, this output indicates the received optical power is below the worst case receiver sensitivity (as defined by the standard in use). Low indicates normal operation. In the low state, the output will be pulled to <0.8V.
