Intelligent communication in the production process with Zumbach's interfaces

Intelligent communication in the production process with Zumbach's interfaces

In industrial production, numerous automation, engineering and visualisation systems are connected to a bus. The PROFIBUS interface enables centralised control of all devices involved in the production process as well as many standard diagnostic functions – and all this via a secure and fast connection. The cyclic collection and preparation and reliable evaluation of the measuring data via the interface has a significant effect on the quality of the quality monitoring.

ZUMBACH's communication via PROFIBUS DP not only significantly improves the workflow between individual production units. It also requires little hardware (one engineering tool for all devices), thus reducing investment and service costs. Thanks to the bus topology, sensors can be coupled and uncoupled during operation.
Practically every ZUMBACH device is available for use in PROFIBUS DP structures - directly or via a PROFIBUS interface. Through the use of an intelligent ZUMBACH protocol, the complete functionality of each ZUMBACH sensor is fully supported from the initialisation step all the way to the actual data exchange.

PROFINET IO - the successor to PROFIBUS DP - is designed for data exchange between Ethernet-based field devices. The open Industrial Ethernet standard meets the increasing demands of automation reliably and sustainably with optimum flexibility, efficiency and performance.
