Industrial Ethernet with Totally Integrated Automation

Ethernet has become the LAN landscape worldwide and serves as the basis for Siemens Network Protocol “Profinet” which used in automation and control based systems. With over 20 million nodes worldwide, Profinet is fast becoming the leading industry technical standard for data communication over Industrial Ethernet.
Three protocol levels are defined:

  • TCP/IP for non time-critical data and the commissioning of a plant with reaction times in the range of 100 ms
  • RT (Real-Time) protocol for PROFINET applications with up to 10 ms cycle times
  • IRT (Isochronous (Real-Time) for PROFINET applications in drive systems with cycles times of less than 1 ms
