At the same time, PROFIBUS in process automation is also recording steady growth. Currently, more than 9 million PROFIBUS devices are installed in the process automation sector, around 800,000 more than the previous year. These figures prove that user confidence in PROFIBUS is as high as ever. User confidence over the long term is extremely important for PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI). For PI the logical consequence of this is to make PROFINET fit for use in process automation.
The success of PROFIBUS PA is based on three aspects: its ease of installation and operation, the many possibilities resulting from uniform diagnostics, and its performance with fast uploading and downloading of parameters. The availability of a high-performance solution for hazardous areas also naturally plays a major role in the process industry.
