Asset management for improved production processes

Along with HART and Foundation Fieldbus, PROFIBUS is one of the most important communication protocols for digital field devices in the process industry. By supporting digital communication and manufacturer-independent device exchange, it offers the best conditions for controlling, monitoring, and streamlining production processes. But to make the communication architecture fit for the requirements of IIoT applications, faster data transmission is needed. For this purpose, modern Ethernet-based PLCs are available, which allow existing PROFIBUS networks in the process industry to be expanded with modern and highly functional segments.

A fast track to your field devices

When it comes to field device management, the process industry still seems to overlook the two key aspects of protocols and ‘accessibility’ – at least that’s the impression we get from the tools provided by instrument suppliers. Softing Industrial has filled this application gap with two mobile enterprise solutions, which are the first in the world to support the three major protocols of HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, and PROFIBUS PA in a single device for connection to intelligent field devices while also offering an interface for integration and data provisioning.

Solving Network Problems with Our All-In-One PROFIBUS Tester

A conventional approach to diagnosing network problems is to use network monitoring tools and frame analyzers. However, in a lot of cases, these tools don't reveal the problem. For a complete picture of the health of your PROFIBUS network, it’s important to evaluate everything: the cables, connectors, topology, packets — and the signal itself.

New options with container applications

Container applications open up new possibilities for use in automation technology with many advantages. edgeConnector products from Softing’s dataFEED family offer state-of-the-art access to process data in SIMATIC S7, SINUMERIK 840D and Modbus TCP controllers. They are using a Docker container technology, enabling customers to choose between a conventional hardware gateway, middleware or a Docker container application when implementing their Industry 4.0 and IIoT applications.
