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 fast integration of other systems.The modular structure of PROFINET means that users can define the functional scope for themselves. The main difference is in the type of data exchange, in order to satisfy requirements for data transmission speed. The high degree of flexibility of PROFINET has resulted in its use in a wide range of applications today: Whether the application involves factory automation, process automation, or drives (with or without functional safety), PROFINET is the first choice cross the board. As technology that is standard in the automotive industry, widely spread in machine building, and well-proven in the food and packaging and logistics industries, PROFINET has found its way into all application areas. New fields of use are constantly emerging, such as marine and rail applications and even day-to-day operations in a beverage shop. And, highly topical: the new PROFIenergy profi le can dramatically improve energy management in production processes.
