At this year’s SPS/IPS/drives in Nuremberg the HARTING Technology Group is taking automation IT to a new level. Within the HARTING triad of automation IT, device connectivity and installation technology the automation IT components stand for highly innovative solutions in industrial automation. Automation profiles that utilise standard Ethernet have one challenge to master. Even within the environments of other applications, the automation application demands highest performance and determinism. Fast track switching delivers precisely this performance. But a fast track switch alone cannot be integrated into the PROFINET automation software. It is only through the combination with the PROFINET I/O stack that fast track switches become genuine PROFINET devices. Thanks to Ha-VIS pre-Link, the innovative connection technology by HARTING for data lines, 4-pair cables can already be used for PROFINET today: without changes to the installation.
