PROFIBUS is a universal fieldbus, which is used primarily in manufacturing, process- and building automation. It is a multi-master system, which enables the simultaneous operation of multiple systems with distributed peripherals on one bus. The protocol architecture is based on the OSI reference model. Any transfer layer handles precisely defined tasks. The layer 1 (physical layer) defines the physical layer, layer 2 (Data Link Layer) of the bus access protocol and layer 7 (application layer) use the application functions.
In recent years, the PROFIBUS fieldbus standard gradually extended to new application areas. Besides PROFIBUS FMS it also includes DP, and DP/V1 DP/V2, to the field of process technology, PA. We are proud to provide communications- and diagnosis-solutions for the entire PROFIBUS protocol family.
Our modular Ethernet Gateway provides an efficient data exchange. Remote control tasks, such as diagnosis and monitoring, can be done directly from the workplace.
