Pluggable Ethernet to MPI/DP/PPI converter SIMATIC S7® (Ethernet breakout cable)
With the emergence of the Ethernet technology into automation, there is now a requirement to connect fieldbus-capable devices to the Ethernet. Here, too, Gateway can be used, whereby in the meanwhile very compact solutions are possible with available System-On-Chip technology.

The netLINK-MPI is built into a DSub housing which was developed for accepting the PROFIBUS connecting cable. It consists of a MPI interface together with a 10/100 MBit/s Ethernet interface and is thus a complete Gateway. Because of its structure in the DSub housing, it can be plugged directly onto the MPI plug of the device and connects this via a 3 meter long Ethernet cable with a Switch, Hub or PC. The power supply is provided directly through the MPI plug.



  • Ethernet connection to S7-300/S7-400
  • Easy to use
  • Very compact
  • Low cost
