International Standardization is an important foundation for product design, development and use. Standards underpin interoperability and guarantee consistent performance and high quality for end users.

The major PI integration technologies are standardized as follows:

  • ISO 15745: GSD for PROFIBUS and GSDML for PROFINET
  • IEC 61804: EDDL
  • IEC 62453: FDT/DTM

PROFIBUS is a standardized, open, digital communications system for all areas of application in manufacturing and process automation.

PROFINET is the innovative open standard for Industrial Ethernet. It satisfies all requirements of automation technology..

IO-LINK is an independent sensor / actuator interface solution for use with PROFIBUS and PROFINET.
