General Description

ProfiCaptain is a PC-based PROFIBUS DP master that has been designed for applications like: I/O tests, commissioning, parameterization and demonstrations. It makes working with PROFIBUS much easier, faster and more enjoyable.

About the ProfiCaptain

The main platform is a configuration environment in which the user can setup their devices with the respective modules and parameters. After setting up the network, they are put in Data Exchange without a download. The I/O’s can be watched and manipulated easily. If necessary class 2 functions can be used on all addresses in the network, even if they are not configured or locked by another master. ProfiCaptain is integrated in ProfiTrace 2.

ProfiCaptain is the perfect solution for a straightforward master system.
