Omron is now offering a new line of PROFINET devices for its product portfolio, including PROFINET controllers. Omron conducted research with a network of customers and technology partners to help understand all the usability and technological aspects around this industrial protocol. From this research,  Omron made the decision to offer a new range of Industrial Ethernet products. Omron customers, using the new technology,  point to the redundancy feature implemented for I/O controllers and the integrated switch functionality with Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) ring redundancy. Other highlights include the GRT1 I/O SmartSlice system, which offers an integrated Ethernet switch to support MRP ring redundancy. Products are already in place for applications such as marine, tunnel and conveyor-belt systems. Omron chose Softing as its major technology partner based on the long history of successful cooperation’s between the two companies.
