Profibus Cable & ConnectorsOverview
Profibus Cable & Connectors
The electrical network uses a shielded twisted-pair cable with circular cross-section as standard type for data transmission.
Depending on the application there are cables
- with PE or PUR sheath
- in halogen-free design
- for underground laying or for use with tow chains
- especially for applications in hazardous areas
With the PROFIBUS FastConnect system, the PROFIBUS copper cables can be assembled quickly and easily on site.
The terminals are connected either by means of bus terminals or bus connectors. Using repeaters, several bus segments can be switched in series. Apart from the FastConnect system, there are other components for electrical PROFIBUS networks:
Apart from the electrical networks (RS485), there are also the electrical networks for PROFIBUS PA
