Community Project


A realization of PROFIdrive is based on an existing implementation of PROFIBUS and PROFINET. Depending on the chosen application class there are different functions realizable.

In order to support device manufacturers a tested source code is provided by the

PROFIdrive Community for free and can be integrated into devices. Thus, device manufacturers are able to integrate PROFIdrive quickly and efficiently into their devices.

To give you a short overview of the Community Project and the currently available technology suppliers and service providers we compiled the most important information in the following flyer:


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.

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.
