Industrial Networks

The SIMATIC NET industrial communications networks, created specifically for harsh industrial environments, supply you with data from the production plant, the manufacturing process or company headquarters fast and reliably, locally and on a global scale.

SCALANCE Industrial Ethernet Infrastructure

Manufacturing engineers everywhere are pushing to extend Ethernet from the office to the plant floor, and into factory automation. But, the demands that Industrial Ethernet infrastructure products must endure in the factory are unique. The Scalance line of complete Industrial Ethernet infrastructure products are specifically designed to excel at providing rugged connectivity, reliable data communications, comprehensive diagnostics, increased throughput and lower total cost of ownership.

PROFINET— Industrial Ethernet

PROFINET-The open industrial Ethernet standard (PTO). Profinet brings together all aspects of automation including; distributed IO, motion control, distributed automation and connectivity to management systems. With PROFINET you can design your next factory and not only its network.


PROFIBUS, the most powerful fieldbus solution for the complete factory automation. The range of applications reaches from factory automation with its distributed I/O devices, drives and HMI’s etc. to process automation with transmitter, flow meter etc. and even in intrinsically areas.

Actuator-Sensor Interface

The Actuator-Sensor Interface is the simple and effective networking system for the field level. It is extremely rugged - even under the toughest of conditions. AS-Interface is easily linked to higher- level networks for a complete automation solution - simple, safe and fast in the field.
