Profibus Logo

PI's industrial networking solutions are based on two technologies: PROFIBUS and PROFINET.

First developed in 1989 and celebrating it's 20th anniversary in 2009, PROFIBUS has become the world's most successful fieldbus with nearly 30,000,000 installed nodes and global support.

PROFINET, a more powerful and broader offering than PROFIBUS is based on an enhanced version of the Ethernet used in offices, and is therefore a future-oriented network solution that embraces PROFIBUS - and other fieldbuses - easily as well a integrating tightly with IT systems and making enterprise management more efficient.

If you want to find out more about both solutions, how they can be used individually, and how they complement each other in all parts of the plant, you can go to the International PI-Website.
