DESINA DistributEd and Standardised INstAllation technology

DESINA is an abbreviation for DistributEd and Standardised INstAllation technology for machine tools and manufacturing systems. DESINA is a specification for standardising electric, hydraulic and pneumatic components and their interconnection on one common platform for CNC controlled machine tools and manufacturing systems. DESINA specifies the overall installation system together with the required components to achieve an unique distributed control system independent from specific field-bus protocols and capable to operate in severe environments. Therefore DESINA is not another field-bus specification.
