Product Description


Manufacturer: National Instruments
Series: PCI Series


The PCI-PROFIBUS is a PROFIBUS Interface Device. The PCI-PROFIBUS is produced by National Instruments. The NI PCI-PROFIBUS comes with part number 780160-01. The PCI-PROFIBUS acts as a robust master or slave for connecting PC based controllers to industrial systems. The PCI-PROFIBUS contains a LabVIEW instrument driver software for HMI, SCADA, and supervisory control applications.

The PROFIBUS is one of the premier industrial networks for providing a secure environment to sensors, input/outputs, PLCs, and drives over a long range, featuring more than 20 million installed nodes. PXI or PCI systems can be added to the PROFIBUS industrial networks as a slave or master node with the help of LabVIEW real-time support. The automated test for the PROFIBUS device can be performed by HMI, supervisory control, and SCADA interfaces.
