PROFINET is an open, manufacturer-independent Industrial Ethernet standard based on international standards for manufacturing and process automation. It is a communication protocol designed to exchange data between controllers and devices in an automation setting. It was introduced in the early 2000s and is the most well-adopted Industrial Ethernet solution.

With its scalable communication, it offers the highest performance and flexibility and meets all requirements for the use of Ethernet in industrial automation.

Since PROFINET is a truly open standard, hundreds of manufacturers have developed PROFINET products, such as PLCs, PACs, Drives, Robots, Proxies, IOs, and diagnostic tools.
