Fieldbus (a definition)

A Fieldbus is a digital, two-way, multi-drop communication link among intelligent measurement and control devices. It serves as a Local Area Network (LAN) for advanced process control, remote input/output and high speed factory automation applications.

profibus (process field bus) is an international, vendor-independent, open fieldbus standard, under the european fieldbus standard en 50 170. in manufacturing, industrial process and building automation applications, serial fieldbuses can act as the communication system, exchanging information between automation systems and distributed field devices. both high-speed time critical data transmission and complex communication tasks can utilize profibus.
