Our industrial network solutions are based on five communication technologies: PROFIBUS, PROFINET, IO-Link, omlox and MTP
The technologies cover all key markets in industrial automation, from factory automation and process automation to motion control and safety-related applications. PROFIBUS - the leading fieldbus -, PROFINET - the leading Ethernet standard - and IO-Link - the leading sensor/actuator communication system - are available automation technologies with future potential and enablers for the automation of the "Industry 4.0" generation.
Technological leadership enables our members to offer innovative and competitive products and solutions. Today, more than 67 million PROFIBUS, over 58 million PROFINET and over 35 million IO-Link nodes are installed on the market worldwide (as of the end of 2022). The PROFIsafe, PROFIenergy and PROFIdrive profiles complement the basic technologies.
Detailed information on the technologies and profiles can be found in the corresponding menu.
