PROFIBUS RS485-IS User and Installation Guideline

Filed under ,

This manual guide details the specifications for the "physical layer" of the RS 485-IS field bus on whose basis is a simple combination / integration of different field devices is made possible. This considerably simplifies the engineering and project planning, the installation and the verification of the intrinsic safety.

PROFIBUS PA User and Installation Guideline

Filed under ,

This documentation provides a general introduction and describes the basic concept for an intrinsically safe fieldbus. It contains the basic requirements and additional notes on the implementation of line interfaces of remote-powered fieldbus components (e.g., transmitters or bus power supplies) and describes possible network topologies, cabling, grounding concepts, component selection and component connection. Additionally it summarizes the most important terms and documents and contains a list of addresses of important approval and certification offices.

System Description: PROFIBUS Technology and Application

Filed under ,

PROFIBUS is a vendor-independent, open field bus standard for a wide range of applications in manufacturing and process automation. Vendor-independence and openness are ensured by the international standards IEC 61158 and IEC 61784. PROFIBUS allows communication between devices of different manufacturers without any special interface adjustment.

PROFIBUS can be used for both high-speed time critical applications and complex communication tasks. Through its continuing further technical developments, PROFIBUS is still the industrial communication system prepared for the future.

Marketing Flyer: PROFIBUS for Process Automation

Filed under ,

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.
