Designed for controllers, supervisors and devices, the scalable protocol stacks feature media redundancy, fast startup and topology recognition. The protocol software is one of the first non-Siemens protocol stack implementations to achieve PROFINET I/O Class B certification, the company adds. The protocol software utilizes a FPGA (cyclone III by Altera) evaluation board that is tested by the PTO for use in its standardized test environment.
