PROFINET Cabling and Interconnection Technology

PROFINET

Description:
This guideline describes the passive infrastructure of PROFINET Networks specified in the IEC 61918 (CDV) and IEC 61784-5-3 (CDV) inside and between the automation islands.

To fulfill industrial requirements, the industrial installation has to work in industrial environments. This PROFINET guideline describes connectors and cables. The wiring of PROFINET networks has to be realised under system aspects. Compatibility of PROFINET components is necessary to enable easy planning and installation.

This Guideline describes the specification for:
  •  Connectors, cables, cordsets and other passive network components (e.g. Bulkhead) for PROFINET Data (Optical Fibre and balanced cabling for PROFINET communication)
  • Connectors and other passive network components (e.g. Tee pieces) PROFINET 24 Volt power supply
  • Connectors and other passive network components (e.g. Tee pieces) PROFINET 400 Volt Power distribution bus

This Guideline describes the test specification for:
  • Connectors, cables, cordsets and other passive network components (e.g. Bulkhead) for PROFINET (Optical fibre and balanced cabling for PROFINET communication)

This PROFINET guideline is intended to be used by:
  • manufacturers of PROFINET cables, connectors and devices.
