The amount of cabling involved in applications is growing, resulting in complex and labor-intensive maintenance and servicing. Make the switch to fieldbus networks and benefit from clear connection for all automation levels: from field level right up to control level, whatever the type of device used.

Your advantages

  • Reduced cabling effort, thanks to serial data transmission
  • Shorter failure and maintenance times, thanks to self-diagnostics in the system
  • Increased protection against disturbances, thanks to digital data transmission
  • Flexible choice of system components: based on open standards
  • Future-proof – extensions and changes can be easily carried out

Leading in technology

Tiger chip  

Leading in technology - with innovations such as the Tiger Chip

Phoenix Contact introduced one of the first industrial fieldbuses back in the mid-1980s with INTERBUS. Since then, we have been working on the ongoing development and improvement of systems for industrial communication.

We are proud of our achievements. With our own ASICs (application-specific integrated circuits) for INTERBUS and PROFINET, we are leading in technology in the market. Developments such as the Tiger Chip for PROFINET implementation are proof to us of the benefits of redesigning Inspiring Innovations time and time again.
