Fieldbuses, particularly wireless fieldbuses, offer a multitude of benefits to process control and automation. Fieldbuses replace point-to-point technology with digital communication networks, offering increased data availability and easier configurability and interoperability. Fieldbus and Networking in Process Automation discusses the newest fieldbuses on the market today, detailing their utilities, components and configurations, wiring and installation methods, commissioning, and safety aspects under hostile environmental conditions. This clear and concise text: Considers the advantages and shortcomings of the most sought after fieldbuses, including HART, Foundation Fieldbus, and Profibus Presents an overview of data communication, networking, cabling, surge protection systems, and device connection techniques Provides comprehensive coverage of intrinsic safety essential to the process control, automation, and chemical industries Describes different wireless standards and their coexistence issues, as well as wireless sensor networks Examines the latest offerings in the wireless networking arena, such as WHART and ISA100.11a Offering a snapshot of the current state of the art, Fieldbus and Networking in Process Automation not only addresses aspects of integration, interoperability, operation, and automation pertaining to fieldbuses, but also encourages readers to explore potential applications in any given industrial environment.

An Introduction to Profibus for Process Automation
A field bus is a two-way link between a programmable controller or operations monitor and an industrial device like a sensor, an electric motor, or a switch. It is a critical part of any automated industrial process - whether for factory automation (discrete processes like an assembly line) or process automation (continuous flow of materials being mixed, treated, or processed). PROFIBUS is a widely established program that allows for communication among and between controllers, fieldbuses, and actuator devices. This very concise introduction for industrial engineers, controls engineers, and manufacturing technicians covers the basics of field bus architecture and communication and the fundamentals of the PROFIBUS language protocol....
A Guide to Theory and Practice
This book distils into a single coherent handbook all the essentials of process automation at a depth sufficient for most practical purposes. The handbook focuses on the knowledge needed to cope with the vast majority of process control and automation situations. In doing so, a number of sensible balances have been carefully struck between breadth and depth, theory and practice, classical and modern, technology and technique, information and understanding. A thorough grounding is provided for every topic. No other book covers the gap between the theory and practice of control systems so comprehensively and at a level suitable for practicing engineers....
