Expanded solutions for challenging automation tasks.
PROFINET profiles specify additional manufacturer-independent characteristics and behaviors for devices and systems in the field of automation technology, e.g. energy management, functional safety and controlled drive technology. They thus serve as a device- and manufacturer-neutral software interface for the user program. Device-specific details as well as all details of communication are hidden. This ensures that the software engineering of equipment used in the machine or plant remains absolutely independent.
PROFIdrive: Rapid and easy implementation of drive concepts
PROFIdrive defines the device behavior and access procedures to internal device data for electric drives on PROFINET – from simple frequency converters to high-performance servo controllers. The drive interfaces are kept as simple as possible and free of technological functions.
