Increasing complexity of control systems in machines and plants and a strong tendency to decentralization induced by an increasing use of intelligent subsystems explain the boosted communication needs between control and peripheral systems in todays machine and plant control. Ever-growing data amounts require a high-performance bus system which is able to transmit large bulks of data between intelligent control elements in a reliable and quick manner.

It goes without saying that the current-generation DOLD PLC is fieldbus-capable. Moreover, it is also available in the degree of protection IP67. An extensive range of fieldbus-capable input and output modules is also available, as peripheral modules of a PLC, for example.
