The adoption of fieldbuses in manufacturing continues to grow rapidly. Manufacturers in all industries are realizing the benefits of homogeneous fieldbus architectures that enable industrial networking across domain boundaries from simple sensors to complex field instrumentation.
PROFIBUS, with its common communications layer, many application profiles, and breadth of media alternatives, offers manufacturers a solid long-term value proposition to help protect their automation investments. According to ARC´s research, the greatest benefits of fieldbus networks are realized in the areas of maintenance and operations, long after a plant has been commissioned.
