What is PROFIBUS?

Process Field Bus (PROFIBUS) is a digital network responsible for providing communication between the field sensors and the control system. The first idea during its development was to have PROFIBUS solutions implemented in factory automation industries, the process industries, manufacturing, etc.

To understand how PROFIBUS works, it is important to understand digital communication systems, as well as the physics that allow these communications to operate. For more information on digital communication systems, click here.

PROFIBUS Solutions and Services

Industrial ICT Solutions

We specialise in industrial applications, everything from process control systems, sensor technology, and systems engineering to custom development, data acquisition, logging, monitoring, and alerting.
