EUCHNER launches its MGB Multifunctional Gate Box safety system with a PROFINET connection, replacing wiring needs for each function by defined input bytes and output bytes. These bytes are transmitted between the MGB and the control system via PROFINET. The safety functions are transferred to the control system using the PROFIsafe protocol. Comprehensive diagnostics information in the form of PROFINET messages makes troubleshooting quick and specific. Replacement of the system in case of service can be done in minutes thanks to the ease with which parameters can be set in PROFINET.
