PI Downloads

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.

Host Application Profile
This area is for members only. Please login to access this download.

Application profiles usually define the functionality from the point of view of field devices. This specification is closing the gap, defining the necessary functions of the counterpart of the field device – the host with its related engineering system. Typically, the host is a PLC or a DCS controller.

This specification does not describe any new feature. It rather provides an overview of which PROFIBUS/PROFINET functionality on the host side is required for which application profile.
