Communication Based on Industrial Ethernet

Learn How to Use
PROFINET, The First Integrated Industrial Ethernet Standard
is the first integrated Industrial Ethernet Standard for automation,
and utilizes the advantages of Ethernet and TCP/IP for open
communication from the corporate management level to the process
PROFINET CBA divides distributed, complex
applications into autonomous units of manageable size. Existing
fieldbuses such as PROFIBUS and AS-Interface can be integrated using
so-called proxies. This permits separate and cross-vendor
development, testing and commissioning of individual plant sections
prior to the integration of the solution as a whole.
PROFINET IO, with its particularly fast
real-time communication, fulfills all demands currently placed on
the transmission of process data and enables easy integration of
existing fieldbus systems. Isochronous real-time (IRT) is used for
isochronous communication in motion control applications.
PROFINET depends on established IT standards
for network management and teleservice. Particularly to automation
control engineering it offers a special security concept. Special
industrial network technology consisting of active network
components, cables and connection systems, together with
recommendations for installation, complete the concept.
This book serves as an introduction to
PROFINET technology. Configuring engineers, commissioning engineers
and technicians are given an overview of the concept and the
fundamentals they need to solve PROFINET-based automation tasks.
Technical relationships and practical applications are described
using SIMATIC products as example.
