Parker Hannifin has launched an open Ethernet-based networking communications module for its AC890 range of drives.

Profinet makes the power, performance and functionality of the 890 family available to users operating Ethernet-based process applications.

In addition to supporting the integration of all fieldbus systems, the module protects against unauthorised access and ensures safe operation.

Profinet uses TCP/IP and IT standards to support integrated communication from enterprise management to field level.

The module is capable of fast data handling and performance, with a maximum of 256 bytes each of input and output data.

Using Cat5 or Cat5E cable, Profinet can communicate over a maximum node-to-node distance of 100m.

The system can be factory fitted or installed on site.

Connection is made via a standard RJ45 Ethernet interface.

A GSD file is available for PLC integration and the module is software configurable for local or remote configuration over network.

Three status light-emitting diodes indicate network and module status, allowing communication errors to be detected and resolved.

Additional features include galvanically isolated bus electronics for improved safety, real-time Profinet IO for seamless connections to other devices and both web server and FTP server compatibility for fast remote access and configuration.

Profinet operates on 100Mbit/s network and supports RTNX protocol to connect to DSE software.

The Profinet module can be used with the company’s AC890CD common bus drive, AC890SD standalone drive and AC890PX high-power drive series.

The AC890 range of modular AC drives can be combined to form a complete multi-section drive system, saving space and reducing wiring.

The drives can control everything from induction motors to servo motors and are available in a variety of sizes, ratings and input/output types.
