Additional protocols can be loaded later
Simple parameterization with STEP 7 Basic
Can be plugged directly into the CPU
The CB 1241 communication board RS 485 is used for fast, high-performance serial data exchange via point-to-point connections.
Point-to-point coupling is possible, for example, to:
SIMATIC S7 automation systems and systems of many other manufacturers
Bar code readers, etc.
The CB 1241 communication board RS 485 can be plugged directly into all SIMATIC S7-1200 CPUs.
This provides users with the following advantages:
With communication boards, users can optimally adapt their controllers even to more complex tasks.
If the task is expanded subsequently, the controller can be upgraded. Updating of the user program is extremely simple.
Use where space is limited:
The communication boards are directly plugged into the CPU, enabling the controller to be expanded without taking up any additional space.
On the Communication Board CB 1241 RS 485, the following standard protocols are available:
For interfacing to third-party systems with simple transmission protocols, e.g. protocols with start and end characters or with block check characters. The interface handshake signals can be queried and controlled via the user program.
For communication according to the Modbus protocol with RTU format:
Master-slave interfacing with SIMATIC S7 as master.
Master-slave interfacing with SIMATIC S7 as slave; message frame traffic from slave to slave not possible.
USS drive protocol:
Instructions for connection of USS protocol drives are specifically supported. In this case, drives exchange data over RS485. It is then possible to control these drives, and to read and write parameters.
Additional drivers can also be downloaded.
The parameterization of the Communication Board CB 1241 is particularly user-friendly and simple with STEP 7 Basic:
The user specifies the properties of the module by means of a parameterization environment integrated into STEP 7 Basic.
