Industrial communication, Siemens offers all the components needed for a comprehensive solution that is integrated and supports the following bus systems:
Industrial Ethernet (IEEE 802.3 and 802.11 WLAN) - the international standard for the networking area is currently the network's number one in the LAN environment with a share of more than 90%. Industrial Ethernet allows you to build powerful communication networks over large areas.
The standard international PROFINET (IEC 61158/61784) uses Industrial Ethernet and allows real-time communication down to the field level, integrating at the same time the level of the company. With the full use of IT standards in existing, PROFINET also allows motion control applications isochronous, an efficient engineering between manufacturers and high availability of machines and plants on the Industrial Ethernet. PROFINET supports the automation deployed (and the communication controller-to-controller) and it allows fail-safe applications.
PROFIBUS (IEC 61158/61784) - the international standard for the field level is the global market leader among fieldbus systems. It is the only fieldbus to allow communication both in manufacturing applications and in applications-oriented processes.
AS-Interface (IEC 62026-2 / EN 50295) - the international standard that, as an alternative to wiring, connects the sensors and actuators, especially convenient via a two-wire.
I-Link : the standard for connecting intelligent sensors and actuators from the field level to the MES level.
The global standard KNX / EIB (EN 50090, ANSI EIA 776) is the basis for the automation of buildings.
The gateways are implemented via controllers or links. Configuration and diagnostics can be performed from any point of the system.
