I am contemplating an endeavour into Profibus using this part:
There is an evaluation/developmetn kit for it:
But at almost $2,000.00 it's a little rich for simply doing some experimentation. I was/am hoping there might be a community member who might have one they would consider parting with,and if someone does have one I would appreciate a PM about it.
I am considering purchasing a few and making some experiment boards of my own, but having a working kit to start with would be a plus.
This device is supposed to be pin/functionally compatible with the Siemens device:
But I prefer to stick with the first choice.
Any help appreciated!
