Chapter 1. Introduction 1.2.2 Embedded PROFINET Controller CPE400, CPE330 and CPE100/CPE115 feature an Embedded PROFINET IO-Controller function. This feature permits LAN2 to be configured as a PROFINET Controller similar to PNC001 in functionality, but without requiring the presence of a PNC001 rack-mounted module. In the following Specifications section, the physical specifications related to rack mounting do not apply to the embedded PROFINET Controllers.
Chapter 1. Introduction PNC001 Module Specifications PROFINET Version 2.2 General Class A IO-Controller PROFINET Support Redundantly controlled operation conforms to PROFINET V2.3 Type S-2 System Redundancy. Note that the CPE100/CPE115 is a simplex PROFINET IO-Controller. Requires CPU315, CPU320, CPE305, CPE310 or CPE330 with firmware CPU Compatibility version 7.0 or higher.
2176 (does not include backplanes, power supplies, or I/O modules) For product standards, general operating specifications, and installation requirements, refer to the PACSystems RX3i System Manual, GFK-2314. Effective with firmware v9.30, CPE100/CPE115 supports MRP. In the case of CPE330, with embedded PROFINET activated, it is possible to have five PROFINET Controllers. However, in the rare case of having all 5 PNCs configured on the same LAN, and then invoking redundancy, each CPU is again restricted to a limit of 4 PNCs (in order to satisfy the overall limit of 8 PNCs per LAN).
Chapter 1. Introduction Maximum Number of Nodes per Network based on Topology • For a network using MRP ring topology, the maximum number of nodes is 64 (consisting of the PNC001 PROFINET Controller(s) plus up to 62 or 63 IO-Devices). If the ring uses Media Redundancy Protocol, this means one Media Redundancy Manager and up to 63 clients.

This step is required before downloading the configuration from the PROFINET Controller.
Chapter 3. Configuration Once a LAN is selected, click on Refresh Device List to display a list of actual devices on the LAN. Each device can be in one of three conditions as indicated by the symbol in the Status column: indicates that the Device Name, IP Address, Subnet and Gateway of the actual device matches the configured device of the same Device Name residing on the selected LAN.
Chapter 3. Configuration 3.11 After the Configuration is Stored to the RX3i CPU The configuration is stored to the RX3i CPU using Machine Edition. For complete instructions, refer to the PACSystems system documentation. If the configuration is stored to non-volatile memory or is battery-backed, the CPU maintains configuration data over power cycles.

Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation PROFINET Operation Overview An RX3i or RSTi-EP CPU uses PROFINET communications for data exchange between it (as the PROFINET Controller) and IO-Devices connected on the same PROFINET network and configured to be under its control. The PROFINET Controller function may be realized by utilizing the embedded PROFINET Controller option in RX3i CPE400 LAN2 or CPE330 LAN2 or RSTi-EP CPE100/CPE115 LAN2.
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation 4.1.1 PROFINET Communications Communications on a PACSystems PROFINET network use the standard PROFINET communications described in this section. 188.8.131.52 Application Relationships Before an PACSystems PROFINET IO-Controller can exchange data with a PROFINET IO-Device, an Application Relationship (connection) must be established between the devices.
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation 184.108.40.206 Types of PROFINET Communications PACSystems PROFINET Controllers use two types of PROFINET communication transfers: real-time and non- real-time. The illustration below shows real-time communications as solid lines and non-real-time communications as dashed lines. Figure 90: Real-Time and Non-Real-Time Data Communications •...
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation 220.127.116.11 External Switch VLAN Priority Settings The PROFINET-IO specification indicates the VLAN priorities for each type of Ethernet traffic that originates from a PROFINET node. VLAN priorities range from 0 to 7, with 7 being the highest. The PACSystems PROFINET Controller supports just four traffic classes, giving four levels of preference.
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation Operations of the PROFINET Controller in the PACSystems System The PROFINET IO-Controller in the PACSystems controller system performs the following operations: • Consumes PROFINET IO-Device configuration from the CPU and transfers it to the IO-Devices over the PROFINET network.
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation 4.2.2 Duplicate PROFINET IO-Controller IP Address The PROFINET IO-Controller detects that a network device has the same IP Address as its own ➢ during power-up, ➢ whenever a new hardware configuration is downloaded from the programmer, and ➢...
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation I/O Scanning In the PACSystems PROFINET network, multiple I/O cycles run asynchronously and independently. Figure 91 illustrates typical cycles in a system with an PACSystems CPU with a PROFINET Controller, and PNS modules used as the head-end in IO-Devices. Cycles may be different for third-party devices. Figure 91: Diagram of Multiple Asynchronous I/O Scans •...
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation Data Coherency In a PACSystems PROFINET network, it is important to note that I/O data coherency is at the PROFINET submodule level. The PROFINET Controller coherently transfers I/O data to and from the CPU on a PROFINET submodule basis.
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation Performance Factors There are many factors that affect the timing of I/O as it flows through the system. Primary factors include: • CPU Sweep Time • Configured PROFINET IO Update Rate(s) • Number of PROFINET IO Devices •...
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation PROFINET IO Update Rate Configuration Selecting PROFINET IO update rates is one of the primary means for adjusting performance of the system. Consider the following when choosing an appropriate value. • In general, for most applications, there is little benefit to configuring PROFINET IO update rates faster than half the CPU Sweep time.
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation PACSystems CPU Operations for PROFINET This section describes several PACSystems CPU functions as related to their operation when used with a PROFINET network. In addition, PACSystems CPUs with version 7.0 or later firmware and Proficy Machine Edition version 7.0 or later provide special tools for use in systems with PROFINET networks based on the PROFINET Controller: •...
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation 4.7.2 PNIO_DEV_COMM Function Block The PNIO_DEV_COMM function block monitors communications between a specified PROFINET Controller and a specified IO-Device. Figure 92: PNIO_DEV_COMM Function Block PNIO_DEV_COMM can be used by the application logic to take a corrective action or turn on an indicator if a specific device fails.
Reset Smart Module for the PROFINET Controller Service Request 24, Reset Smart Module , can be used to reset a PNC001 module in the PACSystems RX3i CPU rack. The result is the same as extracting the PNC001 module from the rack then re-inserting it.
Chapter 4. PROFINET System Operation 4.7.5 Scan Set I/O for Remote I/O Modules The Scan Set I/O function of the PACSystems CPU requests the scanning of remote modules that are members of a configured scan set. The Scan Set I/O function operates like a DO I/O function, with the added ability to identify and group the modules to be scanned.

Chapter 5. Diagnostics Special LED Blink Patterns In addition to the LED blink patterns that indicate a fatal error, the PNC001’s LEDs can indicate module location/identification and microprocessor overtemperature conditions, as described below. Special LED Blink Patterns are not supported by RSTi-EP CPE100/CPE115 embedded PROFINET Controller. 5.2.1 Special LED Pattern - Module Identification The LEDs on a PNC001 module (PNC001-Ax only) can be commanded to repeatedly turn ON and OFF in a...
Chapter 5. Diagnostics Status Reporting The PNC001 module and any embedded PROFINET Controller both provide 32 bits of status information to a configured location in the PACSystems CPU’s reference memory. The status data consists of the Module OK bit, which indicates the health of the module itself, a status bit for each external port, and a bit that indicates the connection status of the configured devices.
Chapter 5. Diagnostics I/O Fault Contacts The PROFINET Controller sets I/O point fault contacts to the faulted state whenever an IO-Device is not available or there is a problem with the I/O module. If the control application needs to know whether a set of inputs is available or not, it must refer to the input point faults.
Chapter 5. Diagnostics Fault Locating References The Fault-Locating References for a PNC001 module can be used for rack-level and slot-level faults. These names can be programmed on the FAULT and NOFLT contacts: • #RACK_000r • #SLOT_0rss where r represents the rack number and ss represents the slot number These names cannot be used to check for faults on a PROFINET IO-Device, remote module, or remote sub- module.
Chapter 5. Diagnostics Fatal Error Reporting If the PNC001 module encounters a Fatal error, it tries to save diagnostic information to non-volatile storage. The RX3i CPU then resets the PNC001 module. Diagnostic information can be viewed from the Command Line Interface using the show debug fataIInfo command.
Chapter 5. Diagnostics PROFINET IO Alarms PROFINET I/O uses Alarms to transfer indications of changes or problems in the remote IO-Device. For example, Diagnosis Alarms are used to indicate a problem with a channel such as a short circuit, a blown fuse, or overtemperature condition.
Chapter 5. Diagnostics Local Log Table of the PROFINET Controller Since the embedded PROFINET and PNC001-Bxxx do not support the Command Line Interface (CLI), while the older PNC001-Ax module does support CLI, the interactions become a little confusing. When reading this section, keep in mind that CLI is supported by PNC001-Ax only.

Chapter 6 Redundant Media The PACSystems PROFINET Controller supports PROFINET Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP). The PROFINET Controller can be used as either a Media Redundancy Manager or Media Redundancy Client on a redundant media ring. Media Redundancy enables the network to recover from a failure at any single network link or network node. Because it operates transparently to applications using the network, no changes to the application are needed to use media redundancy.
Chapter 6. Redundant Media PROFINET Media Redundancy Protocol PROFINET Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) supports devices configured in a ring topology with a maximum of 1 Manager and 63 Clients. It is based on the functions of IEC 62439. Media Redundancy Protocol may not be routed between different IP subnets.
Chapter 6. Redundant Media 6.1.1 MRP Failover Performance A network using Media Redundancy Protocol recovers from a ring failure within 80 milliseconds when running at 100 Mbps full duplex with default values. Actual failover time depends on the device responsiveness to network disconnection and reconnection, number of devices in the ring, media speed, length of media, and frequency of sending test frames over the network.
6.1.2 Bumpless Operation with MRP The PROFINET Controller supports bumpless operation with GE PROFINET I/O Devices if and only if specific conditions are met. Bumpless operation means that a single break in an MRP ring will not cause the PROFINET connection to be lost and there is no observed loss and addition of PROFINET I/O Devices while the ring network recovers.
6.1.3 MRP Operation for I/O Update Rates of 16ms or Greater The PACSystems RX3i PROFINET IO Controller supports bumpless operation at 16ms with the requirement that the MRP Manager be configured for an MRP Test Packet Interval and MRP Test Packet Count that is faster than the fastest IO timeout possible.
Chapter 6. Redundant Media 6.1.6 Minimum I/O Update Rates for Bumpless Operation in an MRP Ring Topology If your application requires the PROFINET IO to operate in a bumpless fashion (i.e., experience no Loss of Device faults and no defaulting of IO) whenever a break in the ring occurs, then the IO Update Rates of all the devices in that ring must be no smaller than the Minimum IO Update Rate described in this table.
Chapter 6. Redundant Media 6.1.7 MRP Ring Ethernet Traffic Storm Prevention The LAN2 Ethernet ports used for the embedded IO-Controller function in CPE400, CPE330 and CPE100/CPE115 may be used as an MRP Ring Manager (MRM). Since LAN2 defaults to be an Ethernet switch, it is required that the physical ring must not be connected until a MRM configuration has been stored to any Ethernet node on the ring, including to LAN2 on CPE400, CPE330 or CPE100/CPE115.
1000Base LX SFP (SMF) - 1Gbps 1000Base ZX SFP (SMF) - 1Gbps Disclaimer: Performance numbers for SFPs are with GE branded SFPs, or are supported / tested only with Avago or Finisar vendors. Other vendors may produce varying performance results.
Chapter 6. Redundant Media Ring Topology with One Controller The following diagram illustrates a simple ring topology with one RX3i CPU Node and three I/O Devices on the same PROFINET network. In Figure 99, the PROFINET Controller module in the RX3i controller is configured to be the Media Redundancy Manager and the I/O Devices, in this case PNS modules, are configured to be Media Redundancy Clients.
Chapter 6. Redundant Media Ring Topology with Multiple Controllers Figure 100 shows a more complex network. There is one RX3i CPU node with two PROFINET Controllers, a second RX3i CPU node with one PROFINET Controller, and five I/O Devices, in this case, PNS modules. The PROFINET Controllers depicted are PNC001 modules, but could be embedded PROFINET Controllers.
Chapter 6. Redundant Media Setting Up Media Redundancy Protocol Media Redundancy must first be set up in the hardware configuration of all devices on the LAN. Instructions for configuring Media Redundancy using PROFICY Machine Edition are located in Chapter 3 Configuration. Only one device on the ring can be configured as the Media Redundancy Manager.
Chapter 6. Redundant Media Sequence for Enabling Media Redundancy To avoid network loops occurring before the Media Redundancy configuration parameters are stored, the network must first be set up with the ring broken at one point. Otherwise, packets could continuously cycle on the network and use up significant network bandwidth.
Chapter 6. Redundant Media Sequence for Replacing a Media Redundancy Manager If it is necessary to replace the PROFINET Controller that is serving as the Media Redundancy Manager, the replacement module must be set up as a Media Redundancy Manager before adding it to the ring. Alternatively, the ring must be opened before powering up the new module and adding it to the network, as described above.
Chapter 6. Redundant Media Procedure for Disabling Media Redundancy When disabling Media Redundancy, the ring must be physically opened before storing configuration to the modules. Here is the procedure to successfully disable Media Redundancy on a network. If the ring has no breaks in it, physically disconnect one (and only one) of the ring’s network connections from the PROFINET Controller that is currently serving as the Media Redundancy Manager.
Chapter 7 Network Management The PROFINET Controller supports the SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and LLDP (Link Layer Discovery Protocol) standards to facilitate network management. This chapter describes: • SNMP Overview of SNMP Supported SNMP Features SNMP Read Access SNMP Write Access MIB-II Groups Supported MIB-II System Group Values •...

Chapter 7. Network Management LLDP The PROFINET Controller implements the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). A PROFINET IO-Supervisor or other network host may use LLDP to discover the PROFINET network. 7.2.1 Overview of LLDP The Link Layer Discovery Protocol is an IEEE standardized protocol used by network devices to advertise their identities and capabilities and receive that information from physically adjacent link layer peers.

Chassis ID identifies the particular device on the network. PROFINET defines two possible Chassis ID formats;...
Chapter 7. Network Management 126.96.36.199 PROFINET Chassis MAC TLV The PROFINET Chassis MAC indicates the internal MAC address used by the PROFINET stack. This is not the MAC address of any individual network port. 188.8.131.52 MAC/PHY Config/Status TLV The MAC/PHY Configuration/Status indicates the supported auto-negotiation capability, the current negotiated capability, and the Medium Attachment Unit (MAU) type of the network port over which this LLDP message is sent.
Chapter 7. Network Management 184.108.40.206 Management Address TLV The Management Address is the address associated with the local LLDP agent that may be used to reach higher layers within the device to assist with LLDP operations. Typically, this indicates how to reach the LLDP MIB.
