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.

The purpose of this specification is to support the standardisation of application process definitions of laboratory devices. The scope of this specification is to define:
(1) A base set of device parameters for operation, commissioning, maintenance, diagnosis,
(2) A mechanism to achieve connectivity of parameters defined by user groups and device vendors.
The fieldbus standard PROFIBUS, standardised in IEC 61158 and IEC 61784 covers a large number of potential applications for industrial control, supervision and use in the field as well.
To co-ordinate application functions in a chemical laboratory based on devices such for example thermostats and scales, the definition of the variable and parameters syntax and semantics have to be defined. This is the main topic of this profile.
