August 11, 2016 - PROFINET – The Movie | Technology Made Easy by Indu-Sol uses the traffic on our streets as an analogy to explain the basic relationships relevant to the technology and provides tips for an optimal network structure and communication diagnostics. The movie also takes a look at the quality parameters of the PROFINET Design and Commissioning Guidelines of PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International), explains their meaning and gives pointers for achieving and maintaining the target values.

Ethernet-based networks such as PROFINET are successively replacing the fieldbus technology and thanks to their numerous advantages (e.g. mixing of different protocols, interfaces for office communication), they function as trailblazers for the widely cited development towards Industry 4.0. According to the PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI) world organization, around 12.8 million PROFINET nodes have been installed around the globe at the end of 2015 alone. In the past calendar year, the number of installed PROFINET nodes first exceeded that of PROFIBUS. It can therefore be assumed that Ethernet-based networks will in future increase their market share and will become increasingly important.

The seven-minute movie explains the basic technical principles behind PROFINET and is aimed at beginners, users switching from other systems, as well as advanced users who need a refresher. It is thus the first element in the theory lessons for the “PROFINET driving license”, so to speak.
