The PROFIsafe Policy provides a set of rules for the PROFIBUS/PROFINET community in order to define a high quality level of PROFIsafe products and services.
PROFIenergy is an innovative new way of optimizing energy efficiency over a PROFINET network. It uses the automation components themselves to facilitate ‘smart’ energy management strategies and reduce operating costs.
This manual guide details the specifications for the “physical layer” of the RS 485-IS field bus on whose basis is a simple combination / integration of different field devices is made possible. This considerably simplifies the engineering and project planning, the installation and the verification of the intrinsic safety.
This document specifies the electromechanical components for RS 485, Fiber Optic and IEC 61158-2 transmission technology. This guideline is intended primarily for manufacturers of PROFIBUS field devices and manufacturers of connectors. The objective of this guideline is to limit the variety of methods utilized in PROFIBUS connections. Connectors for the connection of PROFIBUS field devices are to be preferred to other connection methods because of the advantages for servicing, commissioning and testing.
The Installation Guideline for Commissioning, as the name implies, is designed to support the commissioning of PROFIBUS systems. It helps you to verify proper installation and assembly of your PROFIBUS network. Moreover, the Installation Guideline helps you to locate possible errors. Consequently, the Installation Guideline for Commissioning is designed not only for commissioning personnel but also for service personnel.
As the names indicate, the Installation Guidelines are intended to provide information on how to plan, properly install and commission PROFIBUS wiring and to provide practical guidance on the best ways to achieve this. The operating principle of PROFIBUS is not discussed in the Installation Guidelines. If you require this information, please use the respective documents of PI or corresponding technical literature.
The aim of this PROFIBUS Design Guideline is to support engineers who have to design PROFIBUS plants in a professional manner. Moreover, it is intended to simplify the design process of a plant in a step-by-step manner and to serve as an orientation guide.
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.
Application profiles guarantee fast and smooth planning, commissioning, and operation of modern automation systems involving devices and systems of a wide range of manufacturers. In the production industry, in particular, the proxy function block technology is very beneficial when creating and using application profiles. The document is targeted mainly at planners, project engineers, integrators, but also end-users.
The PROFIdrive application profile provides the foundation for almost every drive task in the field of industrial automation engineering. It defines the device behavior and the process for accessing drive data of electric drives on PROFIBUS and PROFINET and also optimally integrates the additional PROFIsafe and PROFIenergy profiles. This document describes all essential aspects of the PROFIdrive technology and reflects the level of technology available at the end of 2010. Its objective is to provide a comprehensive description of the drive profile of the PROFIBUS and PROFINET communication systems without entering into specific details.
