Integrate the Q.series X into industrial applications for unlimited use
PROFINET, short for Process Field Network, is 100% Industrial Ethernet and was built to enable open standard automation solutions. You can use it for any system integration, and if we say any system, we mean any system. Based on proven IT standards, PROFINET offers full TCP/IP capability for enterprise-wide data-transfers at all levels. It also comes with integrated diagnostics and failsafe communications to make sure your system stays up and running. And there is one more advantage, that will put a hold on long transition periods and costs: you can easily change from your existing PROFIBUS solution to PROFINET.
PROFINET is the manufacturer-independent solution with open standard that allows you to be prepared for all the new challenges of the Industry 4.0.
Can you integrate new communication standards such as OPC UA (Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture)? Yes, you can! Can you combine IT and production networks? Yes you can! Can you combine it with the next big thing TSN (Time-Sensitive Network) and take advantage of the push it brings to PROFINET and OPC UA? Yes, you can!
