PROFIBUS-DP Cables & PROFIBUS-FMS Cables
PROFIBUS cables are especially made for process automation (PA). PROFIBUS is standardised acc. to IEC 61158 that means best interoperability of components from different manufactures. The modular peripheral construction (DP: decentralised periphery) of the bus system simplifies installation and maintenance. The PROFIBUS type A is generally used in current systems, cables of PROFIBUS type B are only used for replacement purpose in already existing systems.
Fast Connect Cable Construction
These cables mostly have a radial symmetric construction. This enables the use of special stripping tools that make possible a quicker and easier harnessing and installation.
In the following overview you will find different types of PROFIBUS-DP cables for fixed installation, outdoor installation, flexible and highly flexible application:
