The integration of Rheonics sensors with PROFINET protocol offers users a more secure and reliable data exchange between devices. The protocol provides higher levels of security to protect data from external threats, as well as improved reliability to ensure that the data is accurately transmitted. 

1. How to set the PROFINET communication on Rheonics Sensor?

  1. It is necessary to have a Rheonics SME with PROFINET communication enabled, for this you will need to order the PROFINET communication protocol prior to the shipment of the sensor or order later. To order the PROFINET communication protocol remember to check the C9-PROFINET option on the RFQ page.
