Welcome to the Fieldbus Reference List, now entering its tenth year
in existence since I started this webpage which is now collecting
some 500 hits per month.
New is an extensive comparison of
the Profibus, Interbus, AS-Interface, DeviceNet, Foundation Fieldbus,
Modbus and Ethercat. Until now, other companies'comparisons did
not go further than about 10 properties (to make it fit snugly on 1 A4).
But this is hardly sufficient in case one needs to make
a proper comparison. That is why I started with these
other systems compared on dozens of different aspects!
Read it for yourself at buscomparison.pdf
Please let me know in case you'd like to have more
systems added, or more details added (vendors or
publishers note: contact me first for any non-personal use!).
On the remainder of this site you'll find the world's
largest set of references to fieldbus systems
and industrial networks; the count has been steadily
growing to some 400 systems, for 280 of those references
are available. Also you'll find references
to almost 120 books, dozens of international standards, and
scores of user groups, vendor associations and trade groups.
Often illegally copied, republished without due credit, or
used in other's fieldbus collection lists, this is definitely
the starting point for anyone interested in this technology.
And another major plus: no ads! I don't sell anything
(except my own seminars on this subject of course :-).
