Fieldbus is the name of a family of industrial computer network protocols used for real-time distributed control. A complex automated industrial system, such as a manufacturing assembly line, usually needs an organized hierarchy of controller systems to function. In this hierarchy there is usually a Human Machine Interface (HMI) at the top, where an operator can monitor or operate the system. This is typically linked to a middle layer of programmable logic controllers (PLC) via a non-time-critical communications system (e.g. Ethernet). At the bottom of the control chain is the fieldbus which links the PLC’s to the components which actually do the work such as sensors, actuators, electric motors, console lights, switches, valves and contactors. Danfoss Drives has developed a number of fieldbus option modules making it possible for the VLT frequency drives to be part of a fieldbus and communicate with other devices connected to the same bus.
