New ERTEC200 based PNIO Starter Kit

Johnson City, TN (March 24, 2010): The PROFI Interface Center announces the availability of the new ERTEC200 based PNIO Starter Kit. The kit provides an easy start in adding PROFINET to automation devices.



It’s a complete kit, including all hardware, software and debugging tools needed to setup a PROFINET IO device prototype: Evaluation Board, ERTEC200 samples, Siemens PNIO Stack and examples in source code, real-time operating system, JTAG debugger and development environment.

Very attractive price point to get started plus risk-free development: Only after the development has been concluded successfully and the certification process passed is a product line license required (for series production for each product line).

Details and ordering information at The NEW ERTEC 200 PN IO Starter Kit webpage.
