The easy way to PROFINET

Throughout the product development phase, Siemens offers comprehensive support for connecting field devices and systems quickly and easily to PROFINET. This includes free telephone support and on-site consultation from implementation to certification. These services give our customers a significant competitive technological advantage.

Highest performance for PROFINET

PROFINET technology from Siemens is perfectly suited for use in any type of field device. The Industrial Ethernet ASICs of the ERTEC family (Enhanced Real-Time Ethernet Controller) are available for high-performance applications. Their integrated IRT switch and ARM CPU provide full PROFINET performance.
The available development kits make for quick and easy development of PROFINET field devices. But PROFINET can also be integrated on standard Ethernet controllers. This is made possible by a development kit specifically developed for this purpose. If you want to integrate fail-safe communication in addition to pure PROFINET communication, you can implement it with the StarterKit for PROFIsafe.

Security information

To ensure the secure operation of a plant or machine it is also necessary to take suitable preventive action (e.g. cell protection concept) and to integrate the automation and drive components into a state-of-the-art holistic industrial security concept for the entire plant or machine. Any third-party products that may be in use must also be taken into account.
