Profibus, from Belden Australia , is one of the largest open industrial fieldbusses in the world and Belden offers a complete solution from cables, cord sets and connectors to switches, I/O modules and junction boxes. Many new products have recently been introduced from all Belden brands including Hirschmann and Lumberg Automation. Belden can assure companies involved in factory automation (DP) and process automation (PA) that its PROFIBUS solutions can withstand extreme temperature variations, high moisture levels, shock and vibration, electromagnetic interference and operate over long distances.
Advantages of Belden fieldbus systems include a shorter installation time compared to using distribution boxes, reduced machine down-time during maintenance, and the fact that these fieldbusses are easier to troubleshoot for faults using in-built diagnosis systems. Applications for the fieldbus systems include the automotive, food and beverage, assembly and handling, and mining and resources industries.
