Devices for Profinet

October 2012 Fieldbus & Industrial Networking

As a full member of the Profinet user organisation, Hirschmann was one of the first independent suppliers of network technology to bring devices for this standard to the market. Now all managed switches, firewalls and access points within the OpenRail, Mice, Mach, Octopus, Eagle and OpenBAT product families feature built-in support for the entire functional scope of Profinet.

Devices can be configured and monitored using the plug-and-play principle, enabling users to benefit from convenient, system-wide engineering. What is more, its comprehensive product portfolio permits homogeneous Profinet solutions with end-to-end features such as management, diagnostic and filter functions, and a variety of redundancy protocols, security mechanisms and real-time applications.

Hirschmann’s Profinet network devices facilitate complete solutions from the backbone to the machine for copper, fibre optic or wireless data communications. Managed switches, firewalls and access points can be seamlessly integrated into Profinet environments and the standard’s entire function range.
