INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS: Card must be installed inside the rear cover of a G3 operator interface with the hardware provided. See “Installing the G3PB Option Card” for more details.


The G3 proprietary expansion slot provides a high speed, parallel architecture that extends the functionality and flexibility of the G3 series HMI. This approach allows the G3 series to evolve concurrently with the latest advances in
communications and standards, without sacrificing performance. This high bandwidth channel has significantly greater throughput when compared to the traditional (external) serial gateway approach.

The G3PBDP00 option card adds PROFIBUS DP connectivity to any G3 series HMI. This allows a high speed exchange of blocks of data, at data rates up to 12 MBaud, between the hosting G3 and a Master PLC on a PROFIBUS network. The DP suffix refers to “Decentralized Periphery”, which is used to describe distributed I/O devices connected via a fast serial data link with a central controller.

The card is easily installed by removing the rear cover of your G3 operator interface, attaching the card using three screws and connecting a single cable.
