ProfiCaptain is a PC based PROFIBUS DP master that has been designed for applications like: I/O tests, commissioning, parameterization and demonstrations. It fills the gaps that other products leave open and makes working with PROFIBUS a lot easier, faster and more fun.

ProfiCaptain – PROFIBUS DP Master Platform

The main platform is a configuration environment in which the user can setup his devices with the respective modules and parameters. After setting up the network, they are put in Data Exchange without a download. The I/Os can simply be watched and manipulated. If needed, 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 a perfect solution for a easy to handle master system.
