Real-time communication with PROFINET based on TSN

Time-sensitive networking (TSN) is a promising technology drawing a lot of attention at the moment. TSN offers great potential for PROFINET.

It aims to combine the wide range of IT networks with the robustness and determinism of automation networks. In short: hard real-time via standard IT networks. But this doesn’t signal a revolution for PROFINET. Rather, it represents a visionary architecture upon which PROFINET is building. Our TSN animation videos shows you how real-time communication is possible on standard Ethernet and how this fulfills the requirements of Industrie 4.0.

PROFIBUS is a standardized, open, digital communications system for all areas of application in manufacturing and process automation.

PROFINET is the innovative open standard for Industrial Ethernet. It satisfies all requirements of automation technology.

MTP Module Type Package enables modular production in which individual components can be flexibly combined.

IO-LINK is an independent sensor / actuator interface solution for use with all automation technologies.

omlox is an open technology standard for real-time indoor localization systems for industrial manufacturing.
