Hello, I need to expand my automation systems, which has T940X controller but, I cannot find updated information about availability to purchase them or if this equipment is a obsolescence cycle. Please let me know if it is an active product and if you can provide a link / brochure with more information. Thanks!

    Hi Franciso, T940X is an obsolete product so we do not sell these any more. However you could consider the T2750 which has improved and more powerful capabilities to the T940X (ELIN, ProfiBus, Modbus Comms) and can even connect to ALIN (via T225X) should this be required. The T2750 is duplex ready so it can have two IOCs as well.

    A brochure is available here:

  • Thanks for answer Bryan, just another 2 questions, does T2750 use the same engineering tool as T940X, called iTools? is direct the logic migration?

    thanks

    T940X and T2750 both use LINtools Engineering Studio to configure them.

    With the release of FoxboroPAC 7.1 and T2750 v2.1 firmware we have introduced ProfiBus support for T2750. FoxboroPAC 7.1 carries a new tool to convert a T940 or T940X to T2750 v2.1 database.

    Requirements
    This will require a ProfiBus NetHost adapter for each T2750 IOC (2 off for a duplex pair) and the appropriate T2750 licence for ProfiBus control.

    There is a guide on migrating T940(X) to T2750 which is available here:

    If you have FoxboroPAC 7.1 and T2750 v2.1, open the T940(X) database and right click on the green folder icon in the top of the contents tree and choose 'Convert to T2750' to begin the migration process. This can be seen here:

  • Hi Bryan

    I intend to upgrade T940(X) to T2750 but i don't understand Nethost.

    How to config Nethost? Is it Nettap of Hilscher? Could you send us Nethost manual?

    The netHOST is transparent. It is configured in the _system.opt file. All you need to do to configure the netHOST is set the ADR rotary dials. This an identifier for the netHOST adapter only - it is not a LIN address or ProfiBus address.

    Example of a duplex configuration:


    Example of netHOST set to number 5:


    You will need FoxboroPAC 7.3 and T2750 V3.0.
