PROFINET Wall

A Guide to PROFINET Product Certification

PROFINET product certification eliminates system integration headaches by ensuring a consistent, positive customer experience.

Safety_Drive

Drive Safety

Powering down a drive to prevent a hazardous condition doesn't necessarily mean simply killing the power; there are other drive safety states that can be used.

PROFIdrive_icon

PROFIdrive

Drives are finding their way into more and more automation tasks. From the simplest single-motor application, all the way up to highly-synchronized multi-axis drives, PROFIdrive makes it easy to integrate them into a PROFIBUS or PROFINET network.
