PROFIBUS Interface Device—The PCI PROFIBUS connects PC-based controllers to PROFIBUS industrial networks as powerful masters or slaves. PROFIBUS interfaces include a LabVIEW instrument driver for human machine interface (HMI) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) applications. You can perform PROFIBUS device automated test using these interfaces. With LabVIEW Real‑Time support, you can add PXI or PC systems as slave or master nodes to a PROFIBUS industrial network. Featuring more than 20 million installed nodes, PROFIBUS is one of the leading industrial networks for reliably connecting programmable logic controllers (PLCs), I/O, sensors, and drives over long distances in industrial environments.
