  • Associated product(s)

Can I replace my S5-95U (MLFB: 6ES5 095-8MB02) with a 6ES5 095-8MD03?

Modules MLFB 6ES5 095-8MB0x only have one SINEC L2 interface. Modules with the MLFB 6ES5 095-8MD0x , however, include one PROFIBUS DP interface. This means, the later module can be operated as DP slave. If you do not need the DP interface, then you can exchange the modules. All other features are identical..

The module MLFB 6ES5 095-8ME0x has a PROFIBUS DP Master interface, i. e.it can be used as DP master.

If you wish to maintain full functionality of your CPU, the subsequent exchange in case of a defect is recommended:

  • Module 6ES5 095-8MB03 can be replaced by 6ES5095-8MB04  
  • Module 6ES5 095-8MD02 can be replaced by 6ES5095-8MD03
  • Module 6ES5 095-8ME02 can be replaced by 6ES5095-8ME03
