Whether used for partial or full automation of existing systems and equipment or in a new logistics center, PROFINET offers you tailor-made automation solutions for high-bay warehouses, conveyor systems, stacker cranes, as well as for other drive and conveyor technologies.

PROFINET Security Guideline

Filed under

This guideline provides a general introduction to network security and describes a security concept for automation networks. It contains the possible security risks and threats together with basic requirements for security solutions in industrial environments. Additionally it summarizes the most important standardization activities regarding Industrial Security.

Installation Guideline PROFINET Part 2: Network Components

Filed under

The signal distribution in PROFINET networks is realized by PMD's (PROFINET machine distributors). PMD's are network components with switch functionality.

This guideline describes the functional and electrical characteristics of the PMD's. Devices with integrated switch functionality are also covered by this guideline.

PROFINET Conformance Class A Cabling

Filed under

This guide aims to outline the conditions under which the ISO/IEC 24702 Standard may be applied for the purpose of cabling a PROFINET network.

Given the openness of PROFINET, Conformance Class A can also be achieved without actually using PROFINET-specific cabling.

However, PROFINET-specific cabling is absolutely indispensable for any Conformance Class B and C automation applications, as only this form of cabling offers the necessary properties for meeting the performance and availability requirements.

This guide is aimed at: Network designers and Network operators

PROFINET Cabling and Interconnection Technology

Filed under

This guideline describes the passive infrastructure of PROFINET Networks specified in the IEC 61918 (CDV) and IEC 61784-5-3 (CDV) inside and between the automation islands.

This PROFINET guideline is intended to be used by: manufacturers of PROFINET cables, connectors and devices.

PROFINET Guideline for Commissioning with checklists

Filed under

UPDATED As the names indicate, the Design, Installation, and Commissioning Guidelines are intended to provide information on how to properly design, install and commission PROFINET and to provide practical guidance on the best ways to achieve this.

The presentation of information in these documents has been kept as simple as possible. Accordingly, background knowledge about PROFINET mounting and cabling is not required. However, a basic technical knowledge of electrical installation is assumed. The operating principle of PROFINET is not discussed in the Installation Guidelines. If you require this information, please use the respective documents of PI or corresponding technical literature.

System Description: PROFINET Technology and Application

Filed under

PROFINET is a modern concept for distributed automation standards; it is based on Ethernet and integrates existing fieldbus systems in particular PROFIBUS) simply and without change. This is an important aspect for meeting the demand for consistency from the corporate management level to the field level. Furthermore, it represents a key contribution to providing the user with security for his investment in that existing parts of a system can be incorporated in PROFINET without needing to be changed.
