PROFINET is growing fast. This new book is a timely effort to cover the application and engineering practice of PROFINET systems.

This book is based on the success of the series, PROFIBUS in Practice, answering the need for guidelines on optimizing the design of PROFINET networks, and for good engineering practices during installation, troubleshooting, and maintenance. The aim is to bring about improved and standardized engineering practice in the application of PROFINET through sharing a greater understanding of the technology basics, the components, the engineering tools, and exploring examples of PROFINET systems.

The book covers PROFINET theory, engineering practice, and a large amount of technical details, for example, how to change Device Name, the timing parameters in PROFINET systems, and the procedures for device replacement, etc. The book contains a large number of images, figures and cross-references to enable better understanding of PROFINET techniques.

The book answers the desire for comprehensive preparatory reading for the internationally recognized Certified PROFINET Installer and Engineer courses and the MSc Industrial Communication Systems course, which Dr. Xiu Ji has been teaching at the Manchester Metropolitan University for a number of years. Her tutorial questions are included to support self-learning.

The book is available at Amazon UK, Europe, US, Canada and Japan.
