Today, Industrial Ethernet is being very successfully used in the automation environment to establish communication between devices. Four-pair PROFINET cables can address more demanding plant and system concepts and provide a technology that is fit for the future.
“PROFINET or the Story of Pretty Polly, Sweet SUE, and the White Knight” – our myth-debunking, fact-conveying, whimsical-graphics, straightforward-text about PROFINET. It corrects the mistaken impressions spread about PROFINET and highlights its many benefits.
This “Drive Technology with PROFINET” has a comprehensive range of applications, scalable performance with cycle times as short as a few μs, and user-friendly, cost-effective implementation. This makes it the ideal solution for all drive tasks.
Tool Calling Interface. Device tools perform user functions such as parameterization and diagnostics directly from the automation-system engineering tool. Device tools are based on a Tool Calling Interface (TCI).
The white paper, PROFINET and IT, describes PROFINET in IT terms and shows how PROFINET relates to IT topology. The adaptations required of Industrial Ethernet for environmental and functional purposes are described.
