Headstation type 1C has monitoring capabilites for 4 networks. The Head Station is the primary element of ComBricks and schedules the interaction between all modules and provides data storage and an Ethernet interface for the user.
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 (hardware is identical as a type 1A). 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.

Repeating function on a 4 networks
Redundancy function on a 4 networks
Protocal: HTTP, FTP, SMTP, NELNET, SNMP, CommDTM.
Live data streaming & OPC tags.
ProfiTrace OE monitoring) on 4 networks (Live list / Statistics / SCOPE / Bar graph)
Screw terminals bus connection DB9 connector for monitoring
Redundancy feature included
Bus termination integrated.
Delivered including backplane socket.
The repeater channel and the integrated oscilloscope are directly connected with the ProfiTrace OE core in the 1B/1C Head Station. Scope images and busmonitor data are directly available in the web server.
The advanced 12 Mbps core of the repeater module can be cascaded unlimitedly and has increased RS 485 strength. The data traffic is constantly monitored for glitches which are digitally filtered out. It has on-board switchable termination and able to drive 31 devices.
