Item description for Decentralization with PROFIBUS DP/DPV1: Architecture and Fundamentals, Configuration and Use with SIMATIC S7 by Josef Weigmann...
Thanks to its broad range of connectable field devices, PROFIBUS DP has (in distributed I/O) acquired the status of an internationally acknowledged standard fieldbus system. In addition to imparting a basic knowledge of PROFIBUS, the book concentrates on configuring PROFIBUS DP with STEP 7, explains various methods of data interchange with user programs and provides useful advice on commissioning and troubleshooting. With its practical orientation the book is ideal for PROFIBUS planners, configuration experts and programmers. Its comprehensive description of the fundamentals involved also makes it interesting for students and docents alike. For this second edition, the chapter on user program interfaces has been enlarged and the overall content revised in line with the expansions that have taken place in DPV1. The new functions and applications of PROFIBUS DP in SIMATIC S7 on the basis of STEP 7 Version 5.1 SP3 are described, along with setting of an equidistant DP bus cycle and the new signals "Status Alarm", "Update Alarm" and "Manufacturer-Specific Alarm". Content: Protocol architecture o Bus topologies o Bus access control o Device types o Data interchange o Interfaces o DP Master/DP Slave o Programming and configuring o User program interfaces o Typical applications o Diagnostics functions o Commissioning

Reviews - What do customers think about Decentralization with PROFIBUS DP/DPV1: Architecture and Fundamentals, Configuration and Use with SIMATIC S7?
Great for S7 systems but not much general PROFIBUS info Nov 18, 2004
This book has detailed practical information on using PROFIBUS with SIMATIC S7 systems and the STEP 7 software. It is very light on information regarding PROFIBUS in general. Only a few pages are dedicated to the various PROFIBUS physical layers. The Fieldbus Data Link (FDL) is given even less attention.
I was hoping this book would spoon-feed me the specs for the various physical and data link layers available in PROFIBUS. Then I would dig into the spec once I had learned in plain English what PROFIBUS was all about. Instead, I found myself digging into the spec right away. There's not that much detail in the book.
I am doing some development using a system that is different from STEP 7. Some of the stuff from STEP 7 carries over but not all that much. I wish the book were more general.
If you're working with a SIMATIC S7 system, I think this book will be a great help. It goes into great detail without being difficult to read. If you're trying to apply the information in this book to another PROFIBUS system, the book will be less useful.
For general PROFIBUS info, I would recommend PROFIBUS: A Pocket Guide. That book literally fits in your pocket, costs as much as a full-sized text, and has as much information as a full-sized text.
