PROFIBUS

The perfect fit for the process industry

Description

PROFIBUS is a universal, open fieldbus which permits

  • fast communication with intelligent, distributed I/O devices (PROFIBUS with DP system) as well as

  • communication and simultaneous powering for transmitters and actuators (2-wire powered even called MBP Manchester Bus Protocoll).

In addition to the enormous savings resulting from the reduction in cabling and input/output hardware, the significantly greater amount of information associated with digital data transmission implies significant cost advantages for plant operation and maintenance.
