Two new technology papers are now available from PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International) that provide system description and context for PROFINET, an industrial Ethernet solution for automation and information management.

The 52-page “PROFINET System Description” document covers all technical aspects of PROFINET. If you need a better understanding of PROFINET and already have a basic grasp of Ethernet then this document will go a long way towards explaining its full capabilities and providing a good introduction to what PROFINET can do for you.

Chapter highlights include “PROFINET at-a-glance,” IO basics and controllers, diagnostics, IRT communications, redundancy, PROFINET for process applications, fieldbus and Web integration, and network installation, among others.

The “PROFINET System Description,” which is available in English, German, French, Japanese, Swedish, Chinese and Polish, can be downloaded free of charge by clicking here.
