PROFINET Gateway for Asset Management

Access PROFINET networks via FDI and OPC UA

smartLink HW-PN provides access to PROFINET networks. By integrating standardized technologies like FDI (OPC UA), it provides transparent access to all connected devices.

smartLink HW-PN can be used for asset management, device configuration and monitoring. It allows to access device identification, health, diagnostics, and process data.

Overview

Parameterization, Plant Asset Management and Process Data Provision using Standard Industry Tools

  • Independent of configuration tools
  • Centralized and time-saving parameterization of PROFINET and PROFIBUS field devices directly from the control room
  • Access from Plant Asset Management applications for field devices configuration

Ethernet Access Point to PROFINET networks

  • Provides 2nd channel to access the field devices
  • Acts as a PROFINET supervisor
  • Is part of one PROFINET network
  • Integrated 2-port switch for use in line or ring network topologies

Key Component for Transition to State-of-the-Art Technology

  • Re-use of existing PROFINET networks without requiring modification
  • Access to acyclic data via FDI communication server (OPC UA)

Asset Management and Parameterization of PROFINET Devices

Configuration, Parameterization, Plant Asset Management
  • Secure, standardized access to devices
  • Parallel to and independent of the controller
Compatible with established communication standards
  • Implements the standard FDI communication server interface based on OPC UA

Asset Management and Parameterization of PROFIBUS Devices

Configuration, Parameterization, Plant Asset Management
  • Secure, standardized access to devices
  • Parallel to and independent of the controller
Inexpensive and low-risk Integration
  • Connection of PROFIBUS devices without additional hardware
  • Use of existing infrastructure using the PROFINET/PROFIBUS proxy standard for connecting to the PROFIBUS devices
Compatible with established communication standards
  • Implements the standard FDI communication server interface based on OPC UA
