Product description

WHAT THEY ARE, AND HOW TO GET ONE

Both PROFINET and PROFIBUS devices have unique ID numbers allocated to them to assist with engineering, identification and other issues.

An ID allows devices connected to the bus to be identified with a minimum amount of protocol overhead. In addition, the ID number is used to archive files which contain information on device features and configuration (i.e. GSD or GSDML files).

Getting an ID Number For PROFINET

The Device Identification for PROFINET IO consists of a company key (Vendor_ID) and a manufacturer-specific key (Device_ID). The Vendor_ID is assigned uniquely to a company. The Device_ID can be defined by the manufacturer specifically for the device. PI provides the schemes and the GSDML specification required to create ad GSD-File. PI's GSD-Viewer supports validation and viewing of a GSD-File.

Getting an ID Number for PROFIBUS

An Ident Number (ID number) is required for all PROFIBUS devices using PROFIBUS DP communication (except Master Class 2 devices).

Manufacturers must register each device type with PI and get either a manufacturer and/or profile specific ID number. The ID number is not a serial number. The value range is 0001 Hex to FFFE Hex.

As soon as an ID number for a device type has been assigned to a manufacturer, this number can be used for each manufactured device of this type without renewed registration. If the device is modified technically, it remains associated with the device type only if it is still possible to describe the parameters, modules and options (e.g. modular I/O devices) in a single GSD file.

GSD FILES

BASIC ENGINEERING IS EASY GSD files contain information about the basic capabilities of a device. All devices are shipped with a GSD file, or a file can be downloaded from this website or the vendor's own website. With a GSD file, system integrators can determine basic data such as the communications ...read more

PRODUCT CERTIFICATION

YOUR ASSURANCE OF CONFORMANCE Since the specifications for PROFIBUS and PROFINET are open and standardized, it is possible for anyone to build and sell devices. However, not all devices are equal and to ensure that users get the quality of product they deserve, PI operates conformance programs. Enacted ...read more

PROFINET - the leading Industrial Ethernet Standard

PROFINET is the result of a collaborative effort among numerous anufacturers under the umbrella of PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI). This vendor-neutral standard provides users open access to dierent devices of the system. Based on its high degree of openness, PROFINET also allows for easy and ...read more

PROFIBUS

PROFIBUS is standardized in IEC 61158 - the foundation has therefore been laid for interoperability and compatibility. Furthermore the PROFIBUS PA profile allows the smooth cooperative working of process devices on the bus. The current PROFIBUS PA version V3.02 includes many functions, which make the ...read more
