Profibus Recommendation For Cabling And Assembly Now Available

21 November 2005

PROFIBUS International (PI) is publishing a three-volume manual with installation recommendations for PROFIBUS. The trilogy covers planning, cabling, assembly and commissioning of systems, neatly summarising the existing PROFIBUS installation guidelines in an easy to read, practical format.

Focusing on practical application in the field, the installation recommendations are authored in simple and straightforward language with numerous illustrations.

The first volume of the trilogy, “PROFIBUS Recommendation for Cabling and Assembly”, is now available in English (order no.: 8.022).

“PROFIBUS Recommendation for Commissioning” will follow at the end of 2005 and “PROFIBUS Recommendation for Planning” will be published in the middle of 2006.

The “Recommendation for Cabling and Assembly” volume explains the professional installation of PROFIBUS connectors, the correct handling of cables and fibre optics and the professional assembly of system cabling.

The volume presents all common connector types and connection technologies – the individual installation steps are presented as text and image. Numerous figures present explanatory illustrations of correct cable laying and point out errors that are frequently found in practice.

An additional and important chapter deals with measures concerning shielding, grounding and equi-potential bonding and provides notes about avoiding damages from ESD. Printed on durable, wipe-clean paper the volume is in A5 format and features a laminated cover and spiral binding.

It is available for 36.00 € and can be ordered from The PROFIBUS Group or any of the 20 plus Regional PROFIBUS Associations around the world.

Alternatively, the installation recommendations are available as PDF files and can be downloaded free of charge from the PROFIBUS website.
