Title: Understanding PROFIBUS PA Connectivity and Signal Polarity

Introduction: PROFIBUS PA devices primarily utilize multibarriers or T-junctions for network connectivity. This article delves into the organization of these devices, their connectivity options, and the importance of signal polarity.

  1. Device Connectivity:
    • Most PROFIBUS PA devices connect to the network using multibarriers or T-junctions.
    • Spur connections are made directly to the connector block inside the device.
    • M12 plugs are sometimes employed for network connections (refer to Bus connector on page 67).
  2. MBP Technology and Polarity:
    • MBP technology ensures correct functionality even with incorrect field device connections (e.g., polarity reversal) due to automatic polarity detection.
    • The Manchester signal in fieldbuses is an alternating voltage; incorrect device connections may result in inverted signals, hindering communication.
  3. Polarization of Fieldbus Signals:
    • Fieldbus signals are polarized, and devices must be connected to see the signal in the correct polarity.
    • Non-polarized field devices are available, typically network-powered, allowing connection in either polarity.
    • Proper network construction involves connecting all (+) terminals and (-) terminals to each other for devices with polarization.
  4. Considerations for Ex Applications:
    • For Ex applications, insulation voltage and single conductor insulation must adhere to EN 60079-14, and characteristic values in line with the FISCO model should be maintained.
  5. Device Power Polarity:
    • Bus-powered field devices may be polarized with respect to device power.
    • Polarity alignment ensures that signal and power polarity are consistent, simplifying connectivity.
  6. MBP Cycle Time Calculation:
    • PROFIBUS-PA data telegrams in MBP transmission resemble asynchronous RS-485 transmission.
    • MBP segments feature bit-synchronous transmission with preambles and start and end delimiters.
