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.
I&M functions provide a well-established set of data for identification of PROFIBUS slave devices and PROFINET IO devices.
The main purpose of I&M functions is to identify a device with its modules/submodules and provide additional information to support the end user during various scenarios of a device's life cycle, for example maintenance, configuration, commissioning, parameterization, diagnosis, repair, firmware update, asset management, audit trailing, and alike. Well-defined uniform parameters and rules should enable the manufacturers to offer devices that behave in a uniform manner and should enable the end user to act quick and straight.
Since some years I&M functions are specified in IEC 61158-6-3 (PROFIBUS) and
IEC 61158-6-10 (PROFINET).
Therefore Version 2.1 is focusing especially on how to implement and how to use I&M functions.
