Depending on your application you will have to decide which protocol to use on your HMI. Let’s take a look at the main differences between a TCP/IP-based HMI and a PROFINET-based HMI.
Last year we featured over 15 application stories in PROFINEWS and we look forward to publicizing more PROFIBUS, PROFINET, and IO-Link installation news. If you think your application pushed the limits and you want to feature it, we are here for you! Submit your story!
Once your network is setup and running some issues may occur... Learn more about device, network, and process diagnostics. Watch our on-demand webinar: Diagnostics and PROFINET.
Chemical, pharmaceutical, food processing, biogas, oil production, mining and many other industries require communication through hazardous environments. Learn more about 2 common approaches for hazardous environments and PROFIBUS PA.
Impressive numbers from PI's latest node count audit. PROFINET devices exceeded 20M, PROFIsafe continued a very positive trend, IO-Link achieved a record in two regards: device count and growth.
PI showcased its first TSN integration demonstration at Hannover Messe 2018. From a user perspective, the demo subtly exhibited a very interesting and unique feature...
IO-Link is the first technology for communicating with sensors and actuators below the fieldbus level to be adopted as an international standard. With this technology you will now be able to go wireless with IO-Link!
The two pillars: reliability and availability. Reliability is the first priority, but availability is a more complex problem because it’s not just about moving bits across a network. That’s where redundancy comes in to play...
