Accelerated growth of PROFINET and PROFIsafe

PROFINET now with 3 million devices in the market, PROFIsafe exceeds 1 million by a wide margin by 01.04.2011. In Germany in 2010, nearly twice as many PROFINET devices were installed as in the previous year.The number of PROFIBUS and PROFIsafe devices have also increased significantly over the previous year. This furthermore extends the market leadership of the PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International) with respect to PROFINET, PROFIsafe, and PROFIBUS.

With 900,000 devices added in 2010, PROFIBUS has now reached an installed base of 3 million. PROFINET was correct for a wide range of applications: “The completion of the “PROFINET for Process Automation” profile is an important step towards a uniform communication concept for the process and manufacturing industries,” explained Joerg Freitag (PI Chairman). He is certain that “the path has now been cleared for PROFINET in process automation, and this opens up many new prospects in this sector. We expect a further significant rise in the number of installed PROFINET nodes over the next few years”.

With 300,000 PROFIsafe nodes installed in 2010, significantly more devices were sold than in the previous year (2009: 220,000). The installed base of PROFIsafe devices is now 1,15 million. PROFIsafe is thus the unchallenged market leader in the field of safety technology.
