Lenze-AC Tech has added the PROFIBUS-DP communication module to its SMVector line of communications devices. PROFIBUS-DP joins DeviceNet, CANopen and ModBus/RS485 as the fourth communication option for the SMVector drive. According to company officials, the streamlined pop-in modules can be factory-installed or simply inserted into an already existing SMVector. As a result, the company says the SMVector becomes compatible in almost every machine environment, and users can maintain their own communication preferences.
