Integrated digital communication in process automation

At this year's Hannover Fair from April 01 to 05, 2019, we will be co-exhibitor at the joint booth of PROFIBUS & PROFINET International in Hall 9, stand D68. In two live demonstrations, we will present solutions for integrated digital communication in process automation as well as for plant asset management and diagnostics.

Users who want to integrate PROFINET into their existing installation, will see our "pnGate PB" at the process automation demo wall. The gateway connects PROFIBUS PA and DP devices with PROFINET controllers, thus creating a solid basis for the future-proof digitization of process plants. Devices with up to two PROFIBUS PA segments and one PROFIBUS DP segment can be controlled directly via PROFINET without a DP/PA coupler. In addition, pnGate PB provides parallel access to the connected field devices for Asset Management systems. The integration is simple and takes place via standardized communication profiles. Users need little cabling and save space in the control cabinet.

In a second live demo, a prototype of our "smartLink PN" will be on display which provides access to asset management and diagnostics data from PROFINET devices via OPC UA. The release of smartLink PN is scheduled for the 4th quarter of 2019.
