What is PROFIBUS DP?

Turn-key networking solution. The application area of PROFIBUS DP (Decentralized Periphery) is the complete production automation whereby high data speed, low connection costs and plug-and-play are central.

What are the different PROFIBUS variants?

Profibus comes in four variants, each with a different purpose: PROFIBUS DP (Decentralized Peripherals) used to drive sensors and actuators via a central controller. Dataspeed up to 12 Mbit/s with twisted pair cables and fiber optic cables are an option.

What are the standards for PROFIBUS networking?

The standards for the Profibus networking are IEC 61158 (Field Busses) and IEC 61784-1 and -2 (previously EN 50170). In this article I will be focusing on the Profibus DP network, which is the most used bus network. In fact, the Profibus DP is one of the fastest and most wide spread industrial network.

How to remove the Profibus cable?

The first thing to do is to remove the isolation of your Profibus cable. You can use a special Profibus stripping tool or if you are used to work with cables, you can use a knife or a wire cutter. The Profibus stripping tool is worth the money, because it will give you a sharp and perfect stripping of the Profibus cable needed for the connectors.
