PROFINET Fieldbus

Description

Design Features

  • PROFINET interface for I/O
  • Master configuration
  • I/O addresses are automatically mapped as Tags in the controller for use by all modules (Operator Interface, Motion Program, and Scope tools)
  • PCI form factor
  • Two RJ45 connectors
  • Set up with Sycon.net

PROFINET I/O is tightly integrated into the A3200 automation machine controller. Devices are configured with the card setup tool that generates the Fieldbus network topology definition. The user can then map the I/O with meaningful tag names that are available for use in the AeroBasic™ programming language directly, as well as in any of the applications such as the Scope or Motion Composer.

Within the MotionPAC, a software-based PLC integrated with the A3200 motion controller, all PROFINET I/O is easily mapped to the input and output memory. At this point programmers can map the I/O points to Tags that are shared with all parts of the system logic, motion, Operator Interface, or Scope tools. In the Scope tools, the Tags can be plotted alongside other I/O including drive I/O, motion states (position, velocity, acceleration, or motor currents), or other PLC tags. The shared Tags are available in all of the programming languages automatically by name. Programming languages include Ladder diagrams, Function Block diagrams, Structured Text, AeroBasic™, LabVIEW®, C, or .NET. PROFINET provides a standard interface into the full A3200 machine controller.
