There’s a name for successful fieldbus communication: PROFIBUS
With well over 64 million installed nodes, PROFIBUS is the leading fieldbus for industrial automation on the world market. The success of PROFIBUS is no coincidence. The benefits of this universally usable, open, and rugged fieldbus system for data communication according to IEC 61158/61784 are valued in all industries. Siemens offers you a comprehensive product and system portfolio.
The fieldbus for the manufacturing and process industriesPROFIBUS has been established as the leading fieldbus for machines and plants for more than 25 years. Based on serial bus technology, it revolutionized the automation world in the 90s and, for the first time, created the basis for distributed concepts – and Siemens was there right from the start.
Industrial automation speaks PROFIBUS
Based on a modular concept, PROFIBUS can be adapted to the most diverse applications and proves its worth in all segments of discrete automation and the process industries. The globally established fieldbus can be used in all production and process steps.
Uniform PROFIBUS solutions help to significantly reduce investment, operating, and maintenance costs and decisively boost plant availability and productivity. Siemens offers you an extensive range of products, components, and systems that enable you to expand and optimize your PROFIBUS installation.
Are you ready for a change?
Upgrade now from PROFIBUS to PROFINET – quickly and easily!
The simple migration from PROFIBUS to PROFINET offers a seamless upgrade of existing opportunities and possibilities.
PROFINET combines industrial experience from PROFIBUS with the openness and flexible options of the Ethernet. The many benefits that PROFINET offers when implementing automation and drive tasks mean that the transition is always worthwhile. Flexible topologies, one cable for all applications, wireless safety applications with PROFIsafe, and significantly higher system performance thanks to scalable mechanisms speak for themselves.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit.
