PRLog - Oct. 9, 2012 - The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech has launched the APAX-5071 PROFINET Coupler for its APAX series I/O modules. The APAX-5071 enables the popular PROFINET networking interface for the highly flexible APAX I/O for use in remote and distributed applications.

The APAX-5071 features an integrated 2-port Ethernet Switch, allowing for a daisy-chain style of Ethernet networking between multiple distributed couplers.  In addition, the highly flexible nature of the APAX Series I/O allows for high-speed communication backplane to be extended over Ethernet.  This allows for I/O nodes to be connected in a line (bus) topology, instead of a traditional star topology, therefore reducing the effort required for wiring and saving installation costs.   Most importantly, a single APAX-5071 coupler can be used to interface APAX I/O for multiple distributed locations into the PROFINET network, thus requiring only one IP address on the network.

PROFINET is the Ethernet-based automation standard defined by PI (PROFIBUS International Organization) and fulfills industrial Ethernet requirements.  It uses TCP/IP and IT standards and has real-time communication capabilities to allow a smooth and easy integration of other legacy fieldbuses.

For more information or to purchase, please contact Advantech directly or your regional Advantech authorized distributor.
