emerson 0516Emerson has announced the addition of PROFINET to the DeltaV. It saves users time and effort by enabling direct connection between the DeltaV DCS and plant floor devices such as motor control centers, variable speed drives, and PLCs in process automation businesses. Taking advantage of PROFINET, users do not need to use a protocol converter to connect to the system. PROFINET joins a wide range of DeltaV Ethernet-based protocols, such as Modbus/TCP and Ethernet/IP. The new capability is easily added to the system via both M-series and S-series Virtual I/O Module 2 (VIM2) interfaces.
