Your interface for “more”

PROFINET profiles specify additional manufacturer-independent characteristics and behaviors for devices and systems in the field of automation technology, e.g., energy management, functional safety, and controlled drive technology. They thus serve as a device- and manufacturer-neutral software interface for the user program. Device-specific details as well as all details of communication are hidden. This ensures that the software engineering of equipment used in the machine or plant remains absolutely independent.


PROFIdrive: Implement drive concepts quickly and easily

PROFIdrive defines the device behavior and access procedures to internal device data for electric drives on PROFINET – from simple frequency converters to high-performance servo controllers. The drive interfaces are kept as simple as possible and free of technological functions.


Your advantages:

  • Uniform application interface for motion control and drive-based safety
  • Replaceability of devices
  • Diagnostics via bus


Reduce your engineering and commissioning time – with PROFIdrive!


PROFIsafe: Safety-related communication – open, integrated, and proven

PROFIsafe facilitates the realization of safe plants and machines on the basis of PROFINET via a communication line (wired or wireless) – without a second separate bus system. Moreover, the transmitted telegrams are permanently monitored.


Your advantages:

  • Reusability of safety concepts
  • Established standard of safety technology
  • Minimized wiring
  • Fail-safe wireless communication via IWLAN


Benefit from the easy and reliable implementation of safety applications


PROFIenergy: Communication with energy saving potential

PROFIenergy supports the easy automatic disconnection and connection of technologically correlated plant parts. Coordination is realized centrally via a higher-level control. The result: considerably reduced energy costs.


Your advantages:


  • Controlled energy consumption
  • Coordinated disconnection and connection of complete plant parts
  • Elimination of the need for permanently wired external systems


Reduce your energy costs with PROFIenergy!
