profibus and FP

Hello, for one application I need to connect FP (or CompactRIO) with transmitters which communicate over Profibus.


Is it possible and how can I do it?

You will need to use a 3rd party gateway to connect LabVIEW to PROFIBUS networks and devices. With the native Modbus capablilities of LabVIEW 8 with either the DSC or Real-Time modules or with the Modbus library for National Instruments LabVIEW you can use any Ethernet or serial port as a Modbus TCP or Modbus serial master or slave. Using this library and any of the gateways specified on the following link, you can easily communicate with existing equipment on any industrial network to your LabVIEW application.

NI references a 3rd party Profibus module for cRIO from a german company called "Comsoft". See the Link.
