  • Associated product(s)
Drives technology depends on precision and high performance. As a high performance drive bus, PROFINET provides the relevant functions for paper, printing, packing and all other production machines.

PROFINET with IRT ensures that your drives always run clock-synchronized. With PROFINET, this is even possible in parallel with other network protocols like OPC-UA or TCP/IP. The TIA portal assists you in configuring your drives. In the video, you will learn how to proceed, what is required and how the whole thing works.

In the video, a SIMATIC S7-1500 as controller and a SINAMICS S120 with two axis is used. The SINAMICS is configurated with STARTER.
