Chemical, pharmaceutical, food processing, biogas, oil production, mining and many other industries require communication through hazardous environments. Learn more about 2 common approaches for hazardous environments and PROFIBUS PA.
The two pillars: reliability and availability. Reliability is the first priority, but availability is a more complex problem because it’s not just about moving bits across a network. That’s where redundancy comes in to play...

While analyzing some communication issues in a customer's PROFIBUS DP network, we quickly realized that the bus parameter settings that were being used in the controller's DP Master configuration were the default values for the 1.5 Mbps transfer rate. Normally this isn't an issue, but in this case it was...
