PROFINET Conformance Class A Cabling
This guide aims to outline the conditions under which the ISO/IEC 24702 Standard may be applied for the purpose of cabling a PROFINET network. Given the openness of PROFINET, Conformance Class A can also be achieved without actually using PROFINET-specific cabling.
However, PROFINET-specific cabling is absolutely indispensable for any Conformance Class B and C automation applications, as only this form of cabling offers the necessary properties for meeting the performance and availability requirements.
This guide is aimed at:
- Network designers
- Network operators
Its contents apply to:
- Conformance Class A
The guide is based on the following standards:
- ISO/IEC 24702 (2006-10) and
- IEC 61918/IEC 61784-5-3 (2007-12)
