As previously announced in 02.2014 (see ProdIS Entry-ID 88232084), due to modifications to ETSI standard EN300328 and technical developments to the radio chip, from 2015-01-01, IWLAN/PB LINK PN IO (IEEE 802.11abg) must no longer be marketed and sold. IWLAN/PB LINK PN IO will be discontinued as from 2015-01-01.

The date until which both variants (Order numbers: 6GK14175AB00 and 6GK14175AB01) can be ordered has been extended to 2014-12-31. This final date is subject to availability of stocks. As previously announced (see ProdIS Entry-ID 88232084), after 2015-01-01 the product will only be available as a replacement spare part.


IE/PB LINK PN IO, V2.1 and higher (Order number: 6GK1411-5AB00) and SCALANCE W722-1 RJ45, V4.0.1 and higher (Order numbers: 6GK5722-1FC00-0AA0 and 6GK5722-1FC00-0AB0) are recommended as replacements for the IWLAN/PB LINK PN IO. This replacement solution can be ordered as a bundle with Order number 6GK1417-5BB00.


Updated 2017-03-01:

On 2017-01-20, the replacement for IE/PB LINK PN IO V2.1 was released. IE/PB LINK PN IO V2.1 will be discontinued as of 2017-04-01 IE/PB LINK PN IO, V3.0 (Order number: 6GK1411-5AB10) and SCALANCE W722-1 RJ45 V4.0.1 and higher (Order numbers: 6GK5722-1FC00-0AA0 and 6GK5722-1FC00-0AB0) are recommended as replacements for the IWLAN/PB LINK PN IO. Since 2017-03-01, this replacement solution has been available as a bundle with Order number 6GK1417-5AB10 (not for the USA).

 


This replacement solution supports the same performance data as IWLAN/PB-Link PN IO:

1) Number of DP slaves max. 8

2) Number of S7 connections max. 8

3) Number of data record gateway connections max. 8

4) Number of DP inputs max. 256 bytes

5) Number of DP outputs max. 256 bytes

Note: The PROFINET update time of the PROFIBUS slaves and of the IE/PB LINK PN IO must be configured based on the released PN IO application scenarios with WLAN components. The PROFINET update time must be set identically in the access point and in STEP 7 / TIA Portal. For more details, see the entry in Entry-ID 22681042.
