  • Associated product(s)
SIMOCODE-DP 3UF5: Is the connection and processing of external speed monitor signals possible? If this monitor does not supply any more signals, an error message must be issued via bus system.

The external signal must be connected to a free input of SIMOCODE. If only one message has to be transmitted via PROFIBUS the input-bit must be brought to a DP-output-bit.
If SIMOCODE has to switch off, the input-bit nust be brought to EXT.ERROR.
