Electrical drives not only drive machines, but they have also driven PROFIBUS. In this way, they have propelled the most recent DP-V2 functionalities: 'clock cycle synchronization' and 'slave-to-slave communication'. They have opened up entirely new applications for drives with PROFIBUS. Distributed automation structures can be realized economically by means of intelligent drives, since PROFIBUS now also permits the highly dynamic distribution of the technological signals among the drives. Digital servo-drives can now be synchronized via PROFIBUS, and the position control loop can be closed via the bus. This allows demanding motion control tasks to be realized.
