PROFINET enters the field level
PROFINET is an open and manufacturer-independent Industrial Ethernet standard and represents maximum transparency, open IT communication, network security and simultaneous real-time communication. With SIMATIC PDM, it is possible to process field devices with PROFINET communication interfaces or field devices with other communication interfaces that communicate via PROFINET proxies, remote I/O stations or link modules.
The SIMOCODE Pro motor management system as PROFINET field device
With SIMATIC PDM, it is now possible to configure field devices that are connected to the SIMATIC CFU (Compact Field Unit) distributed I/O via PROFINET. PROFIBUS PA field devices that are connected to the CFU via PROFINET can be processed or configured using SIMATIC PDM
The SIMATIC ET 200SP HA remote I/O station makes it possible to process connected HART field devices
The IE/PB PN IO-Link makes it possible to process PROFIBUS PA field devices that are connected to the CFU via PROFINET
In addition to PROFINET, SIMATIC PDM also supports other communication types, such as PROFIBUS DP/PA, HART, FF, Modbus and Ethernet, and is thus optimally tuned to the various applications in production plants.
