Shenzhen, July 23, 2019 - The PROFINET technical seminar convenes in Suzhou today. It is held by China PROFIBUS & PROFINET Association, Siemens, Phoenix, Hilscher and other member units. Many OEM factories, system integrators and automation equipment manufacturers attend the PROFINET technical seminar. As a member of PI International, 3onedata is invited to join this seminar, and its representative  discusses the PROFINET technology trends and typical industry application with other attendees, its latest PROFINET products and solutions are also presented at the seminar.

As an important communication standard of enterprise digitization, PROFINET can optimize the process of designing, producing and maintenance, and it is promoting the smart revolution of machine, factory, supply chain and the whole manufacturing industry. Featuring with open, flexible and effective, 3onedata PROFINET products can provide one network for all applications: factory automation, process automation, and motion control, helping enterprises optimize production and improve competition.

PROFINET Highlights:

During commissioning, maintenance, or when an error occurs, it is necessary to obtain an overview of the plant or machine status in minimum time. The integrated Profinet diagnostics allow you to quickly call up the exact plant and machine information you need, no need for an engineering tool. This ensures constantly high availability.

With PROFIenergy, PI was the first organization to develop an energy management profile. Besides the acquisition of energy data, the main feature of PROFIenergy is the ability to easily switch off portions of machines and plants in aa controlled manner during pause intervals. This enables energy saving up to 60%.

Profinet is unique in how it combines maximum performance with maximum openness. With cycle times as fast as 31.25 microseconds, Profinet can meet any requirements and also allow unrestricted transmission of standard data. This gives Profinet the performance it needs to meet future application requirements without difficulty and thus increase productivity.

Security is taking on an ever-increasing significance in the increasingly networked automation world. Machines and plants must be protected by suitable measures. PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI) is making an important contribution to this e.g. by subjecting devices to intensive security test during the certification process.

In conventional solutions, the interface of moving plant parts is frequently associated with wear and high costs. With Profinet, slip rings and training cables are now a thing of the past. The seamless integration of Industrial WLAN  enables real time communication even for fail-safe application and thus paves the way for new concepts.

PROFIsafe is PI’s global standard for fail-safe communication. Together with Profinet, PROFIsafe is a reliable and cost-effective safety solution. Standard safety-related communications run on one cable, thereby significantly reducing cabling, additional hardware, and engineering effort.
