Profibus instead of modbus

modbus
#1

Hi,

Can we use Profibus instead of modbus in Edge device

#2

Hi,

Currently, we do not support Profibus on the Edge Agent. However, if your device can only support Profibus, I would recommend looking for a converter device between the two protocols. An example Moxa Profibus/Modbus protocol conversion gateway can be found here.

Thanks!

Hi @Chandhu_Dangudubiyya,

Currently, there is no direct connection to Losant with Profibus DP. The best way to do so would be to find a product or service (gateway, third-party web service, etc.) that can convert Profibus to a protocol we support or integrate a Profibus network with a IoT network. Documentation on Integrations can be found here, and some examples of converting gateways can be found here.

Let me know how else I can help!
