PROFIBUS (Process Field Bus) is a standard for fieldbus communication in automation technology and was first promoted (1989) by BMBF (German department of education and research). It is the world’s most successful fieldbus, with more than 31 million devices installed by the end of 2009. Over 5.4 million of these were in the process industries.

There are two variations of PROFIBUS in use today. The most commonly used PROFIBUS DP, and the lesser used PROFIBUS PA.

PROFIBUS DP (Decentralized Peripherals) – It is used to operate sensors and actuators via a centralized controller in production (factory) automation applications.

PROFIBUS PA (Process Automation) – It is used to monitor measuring equipment via a process control system in process automation applications. This variant is designed for use in explosion/hazardous areas.

OKSA offers a vast range of PROFIBUS products and solutions.
