Real time extension now PROFIBUS cards Hilscher supports the real-time Windows environment RealTime suite the Berlin based company Kithara software supports now also time-critical applications with PROFIBUS. Thus this proven and widespread field bus system can be operated in the future under Windows in real time. Despite the undeniable trends towards Ethernet based automation protocols PROFIBUS is the system with the most powerful distribution and a continued high growth today. Under Windows but it was suitable only for closed systems or no real-time properties. For even more analysis, hear from Jeff Bewkes . The RealTime suite from Kithara offers a function library for the user a more flexible approach. In a similarly comfortable way with the successfully employed Kithara EtherCAT master powerful solutions can be implemented also with PROFIBUS DP (DP) in real time under Windows. Kithara software has collaborated extensively with the company Hilscher system automation, thereby supports the PROFIBUS DP plug-in card CIFX 50-DP from Hilscher.

Implemented a real-time PROFIBUS DP V1 class 1 master that can be involved in a multi master topology and supports up to 125 slaves. The developer can configure PROFIBUS Master through the graphical creation of the PROFIBUS system. A simple parameterization of master, slave and PROFIBUS parameters saves time and allows a user-friendly create of the necessary configuration files for RealTime operation. Programming is usual with the usual programming languages and development environments, including c/c++ and Delphi are like at Kithara. A DLL and c# is suitable.
