Now available from BECKHOFF Automation , the BK9053 Bus Coupler extends the BECKHOFF Bus Terminal system by a PROFINET RT slave.
Manufactured in a slim housing design, this Bus Coupler, from the “Compact” series, is optimised for cost-sensitive applications. Unlike the BK9103 PROFINET Bus Coupler with integrated 2-port Ethernet switch, this compact version has only one Ethernet port.
The BK9053 makes the complete variety of approximately 400 different Bus Terminals available to PROFINET.
The BK9053 “Compact” PROFINET Bus Coupler connects PROFINET RT to the modularly extendable BECKHOFF Bus Terminals. PROFINET cycle times down to 1 ms are possible with the BK9053. The coupler is configured and parameterised in the controller via the GSDML (basic device file).
BECKHOFF Automation supports all market-relevant fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet solutions. In addition to the IP 20 system, the IL230x-B903 Fieldbus Box in protection class IP 67 is also available for PROFINET applications.
In terms of software, the product range is rounded off by the TwinCAT software modules PROFINET RT Controller and PROFINET RT Device, which turn every BECKHOFF PC controller into a PROFINET controller or device.
