Various bus systems for different industrial sectors

In automation technology, different industrial sectors place different requirements on data transmission. This has led to a variety of fieldbus and Ethernet-based systems.

The relevant user organization creates a requirement profile for each fieldbus or network system. This contains all the key technical data, such as the maximum possible transmission speed or the longest permitted cabling path.

Whether for compliant product manufacture or system startup, these specifications must be observed by users and component manufacturers.

Here you will find the corresponding documentation for the main and most widely used fieldbus and network systems.
