Schaumburg, IL (January 2015) – Starting immediately, HEIDENHAIN is making available a new interface board for PROFINET-IO giving those interested in the conversationally-friendly TNC controls more options than ever. This common PROFINET-IO (ID 825866-02) will be available in addition to the interface board for PROFIBUS-DP (ID 828539-01) that is already being used in the field.

PROFINET-IO is the consistent improvement over PROFIBUS-DP.  PROFINET-IO is an open industrial Ethernet standard that conforms to IEC 61158 and IEC 61784-2. Real-time communication is used to transfer user data and alarms, while configuration and diagnosis are supported via TCP/IP or other IT protocols.

All PROFINET-IO field-bus devices that have been certified by the PROFIBUS user organization and provide device files in GSDML format can be connected as consumers within PROFINET-IO’s provider-consumer concept (formerly called master-slave). The interface board is certified for Conformance Class A and must be used as a provider. The interface board is not suitable for isochronous real-time applications (Conformance Class C, e.g. motion control).

In order to configure the bus systems that can be connected to the TNC, the IOconfig PC software with version 3.0 or higher is required. IOconfig can also be used to configure field-bus devices from other manufacturers for PROFIBUS-DP or PROFINET-IO if appropriate device files are provided.

The following hardware supports the PROFINET interface: MC 6441, MC 65xx, MC 66xx, MC 74xx, MC 75xx.  Furthermore, the following software is compatible with the PROFINET interface: the versatile mill-turn control TNC 640 (as of version 34059x-05), the solid and highly accurate mill control TNC 620 (as of version 81760x-02), the versatile lathe control CNC PILOT 640 (as of version 68894x-03) and the solid and user-friendly lathe control MANUALplus 620 (as of version 54843x-03).
