Advantages for the P-NET protocol

- All nodes are adapted to the same profile

- All nodes can communicate immediately on the network

- Very few communication parameters, compared with other fieldbus systems

- Any P-NET module, including a master, can be powered down or connected to or disconnected from the bus, without interfering with the rest of the bus system

- No DIP switches for setting of node addresses etc.

- The P-NET standard consists of data formats for simple as well as complex data types

- Scaled values are transmitted in SI units on the bus

- Conclusion: Very simple installation and commissioning
