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 operators.
The guide is based on the following standards:
ISO/IEC 24702 (2006-10) and
IEC 61918/IEC 61784-5-3 (2007-12)
