The agreement to develop Advanced Physical Layer (APL) technology under “The APL Project” was established in 2018 and is backed by the leading industry standards development organizations. A new White Paper details how we are getting closer to launching a solution.
This whiteboard video answers one of the most common PROFIBUS and PROFINET questions we receive: What is the difference between PROFIBUS and PROFINET? Watch the video and get a complete answer with technical details. Enjoy!
Moving relevant data in PROFINET networks from field to edge to cloud and back is as transparent as possible -no matter where the edge is. Learn about PROFINET and edge computing in just 1 minute. Watch this video to find out!
An intelligent, interconnected automation environment requires digitally connected systems and devices. Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) provides seamless Ethernet connectivity from the Enterprise to the Edge on a converged network to unlock the benefits of Industry 4.0.
Should you use a managed switch or an unmanaged switch with PROFINET? It is your choice. You can employ managed or unmanaged switches. But, how to choose? This Tech Tip will help you make a decision.
Download this White Paper to gain an overview of PROFINET Application Profiles. It explains the details and mechanisms for the most commonly implemented Application Profiles: PROFIsafe, PROFIenergy, and PROFIdrive.
Aside from the mandatory characteristics in each PROFINET device, PI defines a list of optional features: Device Redundancy, Controller redundancy, Shared Device, I-Device, Dynamic Reconfiguration, Fast Startup, iPar Server, and much more...
PROFIsafe is a safety communication technology for discrete manufacturing and process automation systems. It was developed to meet the Functional Safety requirements for PI communication technologies. Read this overview of functional safety and PROFIsafe.
