Profibus Nutzerorganisation e.V. adds new member in igus
Advancing research in the cable community, igus has now joined the Profibus Nutzerorganisation e.V. (PNO) as a cable specialist.
Profinet is the world’s leading Ethernet-based communication solution for industrial automation. Even large volumes of data can be transferred quickly and safely thanks to real-time communication.
Based on newly installed nodes, Profinet achieved a market share of almost 30% in 2018 according to a study by IHS Markit. The technology was developed by the PNO.
“Due to the increasing importance of Profinet in moving applications in industry, we have now joined the PNO as a cable specialist. Here we want to further advance the development of the technology,” Chainflex Cables head of product management Andreas Muckes says.
“So the customer can be sure that our cable solutions always meet the current electrical requirements.”
While Profinet gives members clear advantages in the industry; large amounts of data being transferred at up to 100Mbps through Ethernet, it means machines and cables must move increasingly more dynamically in a compact installation space: a challenge for standard cables.
The Chainflex Profinet cables are available in four jacket materials, four bend radii and two torsion angles. The igus product range offers solutions for small installation spaces, maximum speeds and three-dimensional movements with up to ±360°/m on the robot or in free movements.
