The driver, delivered as a source code, simplifies individual Profinet communications on a standard PC. No additional hardware is needed for connections, only a standard PC Ethernet interface.
The Profinet driver is suitable for standard operating systems and is configured with an open XML interface. Engineering tools, including the TIA Portal or Step 7, may be used to further simplify configuration.
The new driver supports Profinet with real time (RT) and achieves cycle times of as little as 1 ms when using a real-time operating system.
