Profibus L2-Torsion + Festoon

Bus Cables


The series TORSION and FESTOON are used to interconnect Profibus BUS components. This BUS system is a very economical solution for the field area. For the information exchange between different automation systems as well as for communication with the connected decentralized field units, serial field bus systems are used. The lines described here are designed torsionable or hanging movable construction. Areas such as robot applications and/or garland suspension are easily realized.
