(January 10, 2017) -- MYNAH Technologies’ PROFINET Driver for the DeltaV VIM2 Module has successfully passed the certification tests conducted by PROFINET International. PROFIBUS and PROFINET International (PI) is the largest automation community in the world and responsible for PROFIBUS and PROFINET.

In March of last year, MYNAH announced the release of the PROFINET Driver for VIM2. This expanded customers’ network possibilities and application options by adding PROFINET protocol abilities to the DeltaV distributed control system (DCS) — further opening plant-floor integration to DeltaV users.

The addition of PROFINET saves DeltaV users time and effort by enabling direct connection between the DeltaV DCS and plant floor devices such as motor control centers, variable speed drives, and PLCs in process automation businesses. The PROFINET driver provides a native IO interface to these devices with a high speed, easy-to-implement integration.

PROFINET joins a wide range of Ethernet-based protocols, such as Modbus/TCP, Ethernet/IP, and FMC722, supported by MYNAH Technologies. The new capability is easily added to DeltaV systems that use either M-series or S-series controllers and VIM2 modules.

“We are very excited to receive this certification from PROFINET International”, said Nobin William, Vice President of Technology at MYNAH. “The full release of this driver marks another step in our drive to bring open Industrial Ethernet integration to DeltaV users”.
