PROFIBUS is a standardized, open, digital communications system for all areas of application in manufacturing and process automation. The PROFIBUS protocol is based on the international standards EN 50170 and IEC 61158. This technology is suitable for replacement of discrete and analog signals.
PROFIBUS for Process Automation meets the demands of the chemical industry for use in explosive areas, use in areas where both power and communication are available over the bus. Furthermore, standardized application profiles are available and Plug & Play instruments even in potentially explosive areas.
