Beckhoff's BK9053 PROFINET Bus Coupler

Beckhoff Automation's new BK9053 PROFINET Bus Coupler expands the Beckhoff Bus Terminal system via a cost-effective PROFINET RT slave. It is optimized for cost-sensitive applications and is manufactured with a space-saving housing design.

The BK9053 makes the complete range of approximately 400 different Beckhoff Bus Terminals available to PROFINET users. This flexible Bus Coupler connects PROFINET RT to the modularly extendable Bus Terminal system via a backplane connection. PROFINET cycle times down to 1 ms are possible with the BK9053. The coupler is configured and parameterized in the controller via the GSDML (basic device file). Cost is $235 U.S.
