Netbiter Remote Access to ABB Analyzer
- Using the simulator, you can load the GSD file and connect to the PROFIBUS address of the Analyzer via a piece of PROFIBUS cable - easy!
- The raw data is produced in hex and binary - this can be tricky to understand. We were reading 41 A8 CC CD (hexadecimal), but knowing that the data type is an IEEE Floating Point value from the manual and entering these values into an online IEEE float to Hex calculator gave us a value that made sense: 21.10!
- They are now ready to do a proof of concept to any customer that is using PROFIBUS.
The Netbiter EC350 has an Ethernet port to connect to a local LAN (the analyzer in this case) and WAN port to use the internet connection of an office LAN. After successfully connecting using this method, the WAN access was replaced with a 3G access by inserting a SIM card into the EC350. Success! This proved that the Netbiter EC350 could be used to create secure Ethernet tunnel between a PC in an office and a ABB AO2020 analyzer in the field.
