KW-Software PROFINET Stack* Pushes Industrial Communication Limits
Pushing Industrial Communication Limits: Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 Meets PROFINET
KW-Software opens up new possibilities for PROFINET industrial communication and networking solutions, with enhanced data throughput and synchronization powered by the Intel® Ethernet Controller I210.
PROFINET is a worldwide standard for Ethernet-based industrial communication. Control and device manufacturers need fast, scalable, and cost-effective integration possibilities for leading-edge PROFINET communication solutions. KW-Software helps meet that challenge with communication components that are early to market in stable forms for new Intel® processors and a variety of real-time OSs, including Wind River VxWorks*, Microsoft Windows*, and many others.
• Take optimal advantage of the latest Intel® processors for industrial automation.
• Provide a high-performance industrial network interface without additional cost or space requirements.
• Support a leading-edge worldwide standard for industrial communication.
• Provide consistent real-time communication, regardless of concurrent IT communication on the network.
• Maintain deterministic results from automation tasks, even at high industrial network loads.
• Increase production throughput and optimize motion control by synchronizing automation and control peripheral devices.
