On tour throughout Europe: The PROFINET truck will present the central themes associated with using PROFINET for automation and will introduce the associated components and solutions from Siemens.
PROFINET, the open Industrial Ethernet Standard, stands for flexibility, efficiency, and performance in Industrial Communication. PROFINET is proving itself on a daily basis in a wide variety of automation applications around the world. With the leading open Industrial Ethernet Standard, users from industry can master steadily growing requirements and individual challenges.
Since September 2013, the PROFINET truck kicks off its next European tour. The truck focuses on PROFINET functions and applications. You will learn more about how you will benefit from using PROFINET, how to integrate PROFINET in factory and process automation through the TIA Portal and SIMATIC PCS 7, and what our current products can do.
SIMATIC PCS 7
SIMATIC S7-1500 and ET 200SP
SINAMICS S / G
SCALANCE X / W / M / S
In the new truck, PROFINET becomes an experience: Using numerous interactive application examples and animations, you will learn how you will benefit from PROFINET.
PROFINET’s flexible network structure is made possible through the use of different topologies and the I-Device function.
A variety of topologies, such as line, star, tree, and ring structures, are all easy to implement
Real-time communication between multiple controllers in one PROFINET network
With PROFINET, maximum speed, precision, and simultaneous standard TCP/IP data transmission result in maximum performance.
Isochronous mode and short cycle times
Additional standard TCP/IP data transmission
On PROFINET, functional safety with PROFIsafe provides for the safe operation of moving machine parts.
Transmit safety signals wirelessly with PROFINET and Industrial Wireless LAN
Access control and safe motion monitoring can be used with certified devices
PROFINET diagnostics offer different types of access and fast error localization. In addition, devices can be replaced during operation.
Fast and comprehensive error diagnostics
Simple device replacement during operation with automatic address assignment
Through media redundancy, PROFINET ensures communication in the event of line interruption, for example during equipment maintenance and failures. Featuring complete integration in TIA, the SITOP uninterruptible power supply provides a reliable 24 V power supply even in the event of a power failure.
Redundant signal transmission ensures communication and system availability
Duplicate signal transmission ensures communication and system availability
24 V uninterruptible power supply – communicates via PROFINET reliably and safely even in the event of power failure
Wireless communication with IWLAN supports communication with mobile machine parts, thereby reducing maintenance costs. RFID systems and code reading systems ensure the seamless traceability of components and processes.
Flexible and secure data transmission without trailing cables
Tracking & Tracing and production control with SIMATIC Ident
PROFINET increases energy efficiency with PROFIenergy. This feature makes it possible to conserve energy by switching off unneeded devices during pauses.
Switch off unneeded devices during breaks
Optimal energy management with PROFIenergy in different energy conservation modes
PROFINET shows vertical integration from offices to the production world. Industrial Security protects automation cells through the cell protection concept and offers secure remote maintenance with extended access protection.
The Industrial Security concept offers protection from unauthorized accesses and manipulation, both for individual production cells or in the case of remote accesses
PROFINET is integrated in SIMATIC PCS 7 and protects investments through the seamless connection to systems such as PROFIBUS PA and HART.
