INTERBUS is a serial bus system, which transmits data between control systems (e.g., PCs, PLCs, VMEbus computers, robot controllers etc.) and spatially distributed I/O modules that are connected to sensors and actuators (e.g., temperature sensors, position switches).

The INTERBUS system was developed by "Phoenix Contact" and has been available since 1987. It is one of the leading fieldbus systems in the automation industry and is fully standardized according to European Standard EN 50254 and IEC 61158.

At the moment, more than 600 manufactures are involved in the implementation to the INTERBUS technology in control systems and field devices

INTERBUS is now integrated in PROFINET IO, together with Profibus.
