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.
IEEE 100BASE-TX Ethernet (“4-wire Ethernet”) is the dominating base technology for PROFINET Automation networks. In order to access further fields of application within Process Automation where automation equipment shall be used within hazardous areas, it is necessary to specify an intrinsically safe version as extension to the IEEE 100BASE-TX standard.
In order to develop this specification the working group is seeking for certification/R&D engineers highly experienced in designing hazardous area equipment.
