The PROFIBUS Nutzerorganisation (PNO) invites developers of device, controller and tool manufacturing companies to the upcoming PROFINET Plugfest on June 13/14 in Bad Pyrmont. This plugfest is kindly hosted by PHOENIX CONTACT.
The aim is to test the current status of different controllers, devices and diagnosis and asset-management tools with focus on interoperability, communication and application behavior.
The Plugfest will be organized in two sessions. One session for feature based tests and a second session for larger network interoperability tests.
Focus topics for the first session are the newer features AssetManagmentRecord and High Availability (Redundancy) but also the usage von PROFIenergy, PROFIdrive and PROFIsafe is possible.
This test is partitioned into different feature related test stations with smaller-sized networks.
Focus topics for the second session are MRP Manager/Client interoperability and the topology and asset discovery in large heterogonous networks.
This test will be installed in a separate area in parallel to the feature session.
If participants want to attend in both sessions at least two devices are necessary. One or more will remain in the large network the whole time. The other devices are used in the feature session. The device in the large network does not require a full-time supervision. Therefore no additional “man power” is required to join the Plugfest.
With the experiences of several very successful plugfests we will continuously also update the test procedures.
The plugfest offers a unique opportunity to all participating companies to easily test their device interoperability in a multi-vendor surrounding and for practical exchange of experience.
