Fieldbus Physical Layer in the Application
A major characteristic of automation technology is a strong growth in the market for network components which are responsible for the fault free transmission of data. The range of network components for fieldbus applications pass from the simple copper connector over fiber optic fieldbus repeaters up to hubs for ETHERNET. This article will show the advantages of new technologies for communication and connection. The two major technologies which are discussed are fiber optic fieldbus networks and high speed connector systems. High speed means in this case very short installation times. Also developements for the future like ETHERNET for industrial networking are shown.
