A collection of information explaining PROFINET networks compiled by Max Felser

In the last 20 years I have been personally involved with PROFINET: teaching it at the University, working on projects and leading workshops for industry. During this time, various descriptions and guides to different aspects of PROFINET were developed. I was helped in this by the contacts I had with industry and a range of experts in my capacity as chairman of PROFIBUS Switzerland and head of the PROFIBUS and PROFINET Competence Centre (PICC) at the Bern University of Applied Sciences. I have now brought these documents together in the form of a manual. Its purpose is to simplify entry to the world of PROFIBUS for a wider public.

This project is still in a draft state and not completed yet...

The following structure is planned at the moment:

PROFINET environment

Some introduction to the PROFINET system environment.

PROFINET Engineering

A systematic approach to plan, configure and commission an automation system with PROFINET.


Some examples of tools useful for understanding PROFINET (to be extended).

PROFINET Technology

In this chapter, the different procedures and functions used are explained in more detail.

Important note
