Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fieldbus is the name of a family of industrial computer network protocols used for real-time distributed control, now standardized as IEC 61158. A complex automated industrial system - such as manufacturing assembly line - usually needs an organized hierarchy of controller systems to function. In this hierarchy there is usually a Human Machine Interface at the top, where an operator can monitor or operate the system. This is typically linked to a middle layer of programmable logic controllers via a non-time-critical communications system. At the bottom of the control chain is the fieldbus that links the PLCs to the components that actually do the work, such as sensors, actuators, electric motors, console lights, switches, valves and contactors.show more
