PROFIBUS DP field bus

PROFIBUS is the bus system for communication in small cell networks and with field device. PROFIBUS is based on the European standard EN 50 170 and is implement ed worldwide in the field envi ronment. By meeting the requirements of EN 50 170, PROFIBUS ensures that it is open to the linking of components from other manufacturers which comply with the standard. Siemens supports the con nection of further field devices to PROFIBUS by marketing ASICs and submodules as well as providing technical advice for manufacturers of PROFIBUS components. Three protocol profiles are available for the various re quirements and applications in the field and cell areas: PROFIBUS DP (distributed I/Os) S PROFIBUS FMS (field bus message specification) S PROFIBUS P A (process automation)

Application

PROFIBUS DP PROFIBUS DP complies with EN 50 170. PROFIBUS DP is character ized by fast cyclic commu nication with small data quan tities. Data transfer rates up to 12 Mbit/s are possible. PROFIBUS DP allows distrib uted ET 200 I/O stations, hu man machine interfaces and field devices to communicate with the programmable con trollers. In addition with SIMATIC S7/M7, it is possible to program, startup, test and diagnose the complete au tomation system via the field bus.

PROFIBUS FMS PROFIBUS FMS complies with the PROFIBUS standard EN 50 170 and is designed for communication with more complex field devices with an FMS interface and for smaller cell networks (10 to 15 stations). Data transfer rates up to 1.5 Mbit/s are possible. PROFIBUS FMS and DP All protocols are based on the same bus components and can be operated together on one line (combination master). PROFIBUS P A A PROFIBUS P is the protocol profile for process automa tion, especially for the intrinsi cally safe area. PROFIBUS provides solutions ranging from the field area to the cell area.
