PROFINET and IP-Based Communication with SIMATIC Controllers (IK-TIAPN)

  • The increasing digitalization of companies and the resulting networking in almost all areas is opening up tremendous economic potential. For that matter, PROFINET and Industrial Ethernet are set standards in automation technology. This course shows you the possibilities PROFINET and Industrial Ethernet offer and enables you to implement efficient communication with SIMATIC controllers.


  • In this course you will get to know the real-time-capable standard PROFINET as well as IP based standards such as TCP/IP and OPC UA and how to use them in your automation.
  • You will learn how to parameterize, commission and troubleshoot a PROFINET network quickly and effectively. You will also find out how to establish communication between controllers and beyond the controller and field levels.
  • Numerous practical exercises with SIMATIC and SCALANCE products and TIA Portal reinforce the acquired theoretical knowledge.
