Fieldbus Communications

PROFIBUS is a vendor independent, open fieldbus standard for a wide range of applications in manufacturing and factory automation.

This high-speed fieldbus was designed especially for communicating between programmable controllers and distributed I/O such as the RMC150 motion controller.

The RMC150's PROFIBUS-DP interface gives the flexibility of structured operating modes, or simple input data and output data modes (IO modes). You can select the mode that best fits your application and the PROFIBUS master's capabilities.
