Profibus-DP, G3 and 580 Fieldbus Electronics

PROFIBUS-DP is a vendor independent, open fieldbus designed for communication between automation control systems and distributed I/O at the device level


​PROFIBUS-DP is a vendor-independent, open fieldbus protocol designed for communication between automation control systems and distributed I/O at the device level. ASCO Numatics G3 PROFIBUS-DP nodes have an integrated graphic display and are capable of addressing combinations of up to 1200 Outputs and 1200 Inputs. Also our 580 Fieldbus Electronic comes up with the PROFIBUS-DP communication option. Both PROFIBUS-DP nodes have been designed and tested to conform to the PROFIBUS standard EN50170. Certification has been done by the PROFIBUS Interface Center (PIC) according to the guidelines determined by the PROFIBUS Trade Organization (PTO). The certification process ensures interoperability for all PROFIBUS devices.
