Updating the PROFINET driver to V2.1
PROFINET driver for controllers
Reasonably priced components represent a decisive competitive advantage, especially in the construction of series machines. In this case, users often use self-developed control software. For various reasons, such as performance, flexibility and cost, the individual application is then implemented on standard PCs. The PROFINET driver supports this in-house development and does not require any specific hardware, thanks to the conventional Ethernet interface.
As the PROFINET driver is supplied as source code, customized solutions can be migrated to different operating systems and hardware platforms. Thus, the PROFINET driver can also be optimally used for customized controller solutions in the Embedded area. The driver is easily engineered and configured via an open XML interface without requiring an engineering tool. The long-standing and well-proven PROFINET stack of the SIMATIC is the core of the driver.
The PROFINET driver is ideally suited both for basic applications such as individual PROFINET lines, and for complex machines. Via the standard Ethernet interface, it supports PROFINET RT for cycle times higher than 1 ms. Alternatively, you can also use PROFINET IRT for cycle times higher than 500 μs – in combination with the controller development kit CP 1625.
Controller Development Kit CP 1625
The Siemens SOC1 provides the hardware support that is required to manufacture an IRT controller. The controller development kit CP 1625 is suited both for standalone and for host operation.
- Stand-alone mode: PN stack and application run on the SOC1.
- Host operation: The application runs on PC or e.g. ARM – the stack on the CP 1625.
PROFINET networks must be planned. For the PROFINET driver, this can be done via TIA Portal. A license is not required for this. The ConfigLib is an autonomous API for the creation of PROFINET hardware configurations. The ConfigLib allows to create RT and IRT projects, and sets up the planning algorithm.
