Re: Does PROFINET have a similar mechanism to SystemCommand?

Does PROFINET have a similar mechanism to SystemCommand? Yes and No. Since there are differing 'categories' of IO-Link SystemCommands, some have an equivalent in PROFINET and some do not. For example the IO-Link factory settings is a DCP ResetToFactory service in PROFINET. The big difference is tha...

Re: Demo application on top of Profinet and Profidrive

To do a read / write PROFIdrive PNU object you use the SINAPARA function block (FB286) which is part of the SINAMICS library. IIRC that comes with TIA Portal per default. In TIA Portal the help is slightly misleading, the function block works just fine with any PROFIdrive compliant device. So, do yo...

There is no PROFIenergy community example.
The stack providers may have an example implementation, if you already use a device stack you can ask your provider.

Re: Unexpected LLDP frame from "PROFIBUS" TLV?

The primary setup tool may install those, not sure.

hello L_zea,

I think it makes sense.
Even when energy savings for a single device may be 'low', it is the amount of devices that count :)
