Decentralisation

To reduce the amount of cabling, decentralisation of the I/O levels with a bus is recommended. The bus cabling can be done with copper conductors or fibre optics. The Profibus shield must be additionally connected at the entrance to the housing. Only the equipment approved in Appendix A is permitted as passive distributors and decentralised I/O systems.
