PNO Plugfest at Phoenix Contact

 

Last week, at the annual PNO Plugfest, over 60 people from over 20 different companies connected and tested their Profinet devices in order to establish a stable connection. At the event, all main Profinet Technologies were tested e.g. PROFIdrive, PROFIenergy and the High Availability Profile.

As part of the Profinet Plugfest, Phoenix Contact tested several Profinet devices and controllers such as the new PLCnext Control AXC F 2152. Apart from the PLCnext Control, the company also tested 2 Profinet Devices, which are still in development, with the Profinet redundancy (S2 redundancy). During testing, small vulnerabilities were found that can now be used to purposefully continue and finalize the development. Due to the large number of present Profinet devices, realistic tests of larger plants were able to be carried out. Even here, bugs were found in the detail which can now be resolved quickly.
