auma profinet
A new interface for AC .2 actuator controls now allows AUMA actuators to be integrated into Profinet networks. The increasingly popular Profinet standard gives the actuator manufacturer a second Industrial Ethernet-based networking option alongside Modbus TCP/IP. The new interface meets the requirements of Profinet specification 2.3 and supports Conformance Class B (CC-B). Rates of up to 100 Mbit/s are possible. Implementation into line and loop topologies is facilitated by the integrated switch function. Loop topologies additionally provide redundancy via the Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP). Physical connection is made via field-assembled RJ45 connectors. Commissioning, handling of actuators, and fault diagnostics are easy and convenient, thanks to features including automatic address assignment.
