An Interface board for Profinet-IO (ID 825866-02) is now available in addition to the interface board for Profibus-DP (ID 828539-01) that is already being used in the field.
Profinet-IO, the consistent improvement over Profibus-DP, is an open industrial Ethernet standard that conforms to IEC 61158 and IEC 61784-2. Real-time communication is used to transfer user data and alarms, while configuration and diagnosis are supported through TCP/IP or other IT protocols.
To configure the bus systems to connect to the TNC requires the IOconfig PC software with version 3.0 or higher. IOconfig can also be used to configure field-bus devices from other manufacturers for Profibus-DP or Profinet-IO if appropriate device files are provided.
The following hardware supports the Profinet interface: MC 6441, MC 65xx, MC 66xx, MC 74xx and MC 75xx. Furthermore, the following software is compatible with the interface: the mill-turn control TNC 640 (as of version 34059x-05), the solid and highly accurate mill control TNC 620 (as of version 81760x-02), the versatile lathe control CNC PILOT 640 (as of version 68894x-03), and the solid and user-friendly lathe control MANUALplus 620 (as of version 54843x-03).
