PROFINET Technology and Application - System Description



PROFINET is a modern concept for distributed automation standards; it is based on Ethernet and integrates existing fieldbus systems in particular PROFIBUS) simply and without change. This is an important aspect for meeting the demand for consistency from the corporate management level to the field level. Furthermore, it represents a key contribution to providing the user with security for his investment in that existing parts of a system can be incorporated in PROFINET without needing to be changed.

The PROFINET Technology and Application - System Description gives you a fast overview on the PROFInet Technology.
