In the previous lesson we began describing how to use a Profinet-DP network within your control system. As discussed, you are going to place a remote station on the factory floor that will be used with your remote field devices.
That remote station is going to need an I/O station communicator. There are many products offered for use by different manufacturers. For our purposes we are going to be using the ET200 that is offered by Siemens.
Depending on the application you are using, there are different models to choose from. Check out this lesson where we discuss the ET200.
