Profinet ups presence in global networking

30 October 2007

Profinet is catching Profibus up in global networking, according to a recent Profibus newsletter.

The claim was made following a 40% cut in price for the Ertec Ethernet Controller.

Ertec is an all-purpose chip for any Profinet application and has conventional ‘store and forward’ capability as well as the ‘cut through’ needed for IRT. Furthermore, it has enough processing power to include the Profinet stack.

Profibus claims this flexibility, now combined with low cost, makes Ertec a competitive option for many end devices, not just high end drives and motion controllers.
