The Specific Aspects of PROFINET Industrial Networks

PROFINET, a product of Siemens company, is a communication standard with extended functionality. It is widely used in industrial automation systems and allows for data exchange among all corporate levels via Ethernet. The communication standard is now often used in building distributed I/O systems, as well as in managing distributed intelligence systems. The data is transferred by means of optical fibers and copper cables with the speed reaching 100 Mbps.

The advantages of PROFINET networks include:

  • real-time operation,
  • simplified engineering of automation systems,
  • support of standard mechanisms for data transfer,
  • interaction with other networks by means of gateways,
  • operability in hard conditions.
