The Head Station is the primary element of ComBricks and has to be inserted in the most left slot of the fixed backplane socket. It schedules the interaction between all modules and provides data storage and an Ethernet interface for the user.
Head Station Type 1C with ProfiTrace OE
Type 1C is an enhanced type that contain a ProfiTrace core for monitoring 4 PROFIBUS networks and an advanced web server for permanent remote maintenance of the PROFIBUS installation over Ethernet.
For monitoring repeater modules or slave modules are required to provide PROFIBUS telegrams on the backplane network.
Through the ProfiTrace 2 software package, OPC tags can be directly streamed from the Head Station type 1C. ProfiTrace 2 will run with full monitoring functionality and the user can benefit from its features.
The Head Station provides power to all modules through its redundant power supply.
