PROFIBUS and PROFINET are communication standards in automation technology. BHS Control Systems uses both technologies in combination with its expertise and experience.
PROFIBUS (Process Field Bus) is the world’s leading field bus for industrial automation. The communication standard, which can be adapted to all applications, has been established since the 1980s, when it revolutionized the world of automation at the time. PROFIBUS is now number one for end-to-end industrial communication and provides an extensive range of products and services.
PROFINET is an open industrial ethernet standard for automation and unites the industrial experience of PROFIBUS with the flexibility of ethernet. This allows PROFINET to provide the highest degree of freedom when designing machine and plant architecture. Communication can take place via iWLAN. Communication can be expanded as needed by integrating existing systems or other PROFINET participants.
It is easy to move from PROFIBUS to PROFINET.
