Digitalization in the process industry results in greatly increased amounts of data (big data), makes end-to-end communication all the way down to the field necessary and requires flexible as well as secure communication networks.

  • End-to-end vertical and horizontal Ethernet communication on the field level

  • End-to-end vertical and horizontal Ethernet communication on the field level

  • Maximum availability as required by changes during operation

  • Freely scalable redundancy enables high cost savings through optimally tailored solutions

  • Greater flexibility thanks to a common plant network allows for the free assignment of the devices to the controllers and easy plant expandability

  • Topologies are based on the requirements and plant specifications, which can reduce cabling costs by more than 60%!

  • "One cable for everything" strategy results in better cost efficiency

  • Easy device integration and quick device replacement during operation

  • Installation wizards and integrated device/network diagnostics

  • Investment protection through integration of existing structures and technologies

  • Gradual transition from PROFIBUS¬†DP to PROFINET
