Taking Control of your PROFINET Devices

PND Header

There are many industrial protocols, but three giants are especially prevalent in automation: EtherNet/IP™, PROFINET, and Modbus® TCP/IP. Your operation likely includes a mix of devices that use these protocols and others – and it’s up to you to establish communication between them. With gateways connecting EtherNet/IP controllers to PROFINET I/O, and PROFINET I/O to Modbus TCP/IP controllers, you can secure high-speed communications for your facility – and benefit in other ways as well.

EtherNet/IP multiple I/O connection support:

  • For large applications requiring high speed I/O communications

Diagnostic data:

  • Transferred to your PAC or PLC and monitored in your operator station
  • Reduces unscheduled downtime by quickly narrowing down communication problems

Two isolated Ethernet ports:

  • EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, and PROFINET devices on separate subnets
  • Allows you to isolate your networks, ensuring that only the data you want to transfer is sent between your equipment
  • Avoid having to change each device’s IP address, which can require getting access to several software packages, and could affect your OEM’s warranty
