In this section you'll find several sets of downloadable files, ranging from simple forms to join PI to executables to help you engineering and commissioning PROFIBUS and PROFINET devices. Much of it is free, although to get some files you'll need to join PI (Become a member) to gain access. The 'key' icon tells you which file needs a password.
For non-members we offer certain documents for sale. Please find our current literature list with official prices and order form here.
If you are looking for a specific order number please use also the full text search in the upper left hand corner of this website to find your documentation or software.
PROFINET, the "Industrial Ethernet" communication system based on standard
Ethernet, combines with the PROFIdrive drive profile, which has already
been used successfully with PROFIBUS for decades, as well as other technologies
such as device and application profiles, to form the basis for an extremely
high-performance and future-proof drive technology.
This “Drive Technology with PROFINET” has a comprehensive range of applications,
scalable performance with cycle times as short as a few ?s, and
user-friendly, cost-effective implementation. This makes it the ideal solution
for all drive tasks.
All of the technologies used originated from, and are supported by, working
groups of PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI), the world’s largest
community of manufacturers and users of automation technology.
