Investment protection for existing systems and no reliance on a specific manufacturer
You can continue to use legacy system and plant components that communicate over PROFIBUS and expand them. Through seamless integration of PROFIBUS devices in PROFINET over IE/PB LINK PN IO, you can protect your previous investments. You can therefore rely on the innovative PROFINET standard and also remain independent of a specific manufacturer.
Corporate communication from a central point and worldwide access
You can load STEP 7 programs from a central point and optimize your plant. Access to process data is provided not only at all levels of the company, but also worldwide over Industrial Ethernet and the Internet.
Devices can be replaced without the need for a programming device
Using the C-Plug swap media for backing up the configuration data, devices can be replaced without the need for a programming device.
