Cloud system for Profinet simplifies distributed automation

12 July 2016

The new Proficloud system from Phoenix Contact enables easy and secure communication and control of machines and systems. The combination of the Profinet standard and Proficloud services is said to open up new possibilities for automation.

The system consists of a coupler, the controller, the Proficloud license, and the Proficloud services. It can be easily installed - users build the automation network in their usual development environment and the Proficloud coupler is installed locally to connect the local Profinet network to the Proficloud via the Internet.

At distributed locations, the Proficloud-capable controllers connect to the cloud via the Internet. The distributed devices now appear as local devices in the Profinet network, without the need for any further configuration or programming. The Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption ensures data security.
