Asset management for improved production processes

Fieldbuses in the process industry

Digital field devices deliver an ever-increasing amount of data that provides sound insights into plant condition and based on which modern asset management can be carried out. To ensure a continuous data flow beyond the analog measured value, digital communication protocols have become established in the process industry in addition to the analog 4..20 mA current loop. The three most important are HART, Foundation Fieldbus (FF) and PROFIBUS. While FF is widely used in the USA, PROFIBUS has become the fieldbus protocol of choice in the European process industry. It allows the long cable runs required in process automation and the PROFIBUS PA profile can be used in hazardous areas. And by supporting digital communication and manufacturer-independent device exchange, it offers the best conditions for controlling, monitoring and streamlining production processes.

Ethernet/IP for modern asset management

But fieldbuses are not the end of the story. Ethernet-based control systems are available for innovative asset management. They offer higher bandwidths for data transmission and enable the integration of Industry 4.0 applications. By integrating these PLCs, existing plants in the process industry can be expanded to include modern and highly functional segments.

Combined solutions manage the transition to state-of-the-art technology

This is where the combined solutions come in that Softing Industrial has developed with its partners Schneider Electric and Endress+Hauser:

Softing’s “epGate” connects PROFIBUS PA and DP devices from Endress+Hauser with the M580 Ethernet/IP control system and the Control Expert engineering tool from Schneider Electric. The benefits are obvious:

  • The required investment is manageable, since it is not the entire plant that has to be modernized. The existing PROFIBUS PA and DP segments can be integrated into a modern Ethernet/IP network architecture without any changes.
  • Gateway integration is done quickly, either by using the generated EDS (Electronic Data Sheet) file (exported from the Embedded Web Server) or through the Schneider Electric Advanced Generic DTM (Device Type Manager) installed by default in EcoStruxure™ Control Expert engineering tool.
  • The Asset Management of the field devices can be easily realized via FDT (Field Device Type) frame applications such as FieldCare from Endress+Hauser with an included CommDTM (Communication Device Type Manager).

HA for simplifying PROFIBUS INTEGRATION for process control

NEWS from the  :  10 /20 / 2020

Softing Industrial just released version 1.20 of its Modbus to PROFIBUS gateways adding redundancy for critical process control applications and adding XML import for simplified integration into Schneider Electric engineering systems.

Softing’s Modbus to PROFIBUS Gateways mbGate PA, mbGate PB and mbGate DP enable the direct integration of PROFIBUS PA and DP segments into Modbus/TCP systems. They act as Modbus server and PROFIBUS master and connect up to 4 PROFIBUS PA segments as well as 1 DP segment with Modbus TCP. Version 1.20 now supports the operation of two redundant gateways in combination with two redundant Modbus controllers. In this way, system availability is ensured even in the event of a connection failure. Furthermore, the PROFIBUS configuration from the gateway can now be easily transferred to Schneider’s Unity PRO via XML import. Initial engineering is thus reduced to a minimum and changes in the system configuration can be transferred quickly to the control system eliminating risk of error.

mbGate PA, PB and DP are part of Softing’s gateway family for multi-protocol process control which includes gateways with server functionality for Modbus TCP, PROFINET and Ethernet/IP. The gateways enable fast and easy field device connection for integrated, digital communication in process plants. In this way, users modernize and expand their existing installations quickly and cost-effectively and create the basis for more efficiency and flexibility in their production.

ICE cube production with the PROFINET Switch from Helmholz


The Budé Group from Maastricht has been active in the world of industrial production automation, mechanical engineering, revision and maintenance for more than 30 years now. A family-owned company with a passion for technology and the solution of technical problems.

Budé Innovative Solutions bv, a member of the Budé Group, has built a unique machine for the ice industry. This machine is designed for washdown applications (cleaning with high pressure, hot water as well as aggressive chemical agents) and produces around 20 tons of crystal clear ice cubes per day at minimal energy costs.

Sven Kuypers, senior engineer for industrial automation at Budé: “The CubyKing, as the machine is called, is an ice machine that is produced entirely of stainless steel 304. The machine is distinguished by its high production capacity in combination with its relatively compact dimensions.”

capacity in combination with its relatively compact dimensions.”

PROFINET Switch with protection class IP67

Because a lot of technology had to be integrated into a small space, a decision was made to place the PROFINET elements, including the switches, as decentralized as possible. The 44 servomotors with integrated drives, the 4 valve islands and the remote IO are all decentralized and executed in IP67.

All of these PROFINET elements are connected by M12 technology with the managed PROFINET switches with protection class IP67 from Helmholz. These switches are certified by PI. They can be easily incorporated into the hardware configuration of the PLC and thus offer optimal functionality.


The PROFIBUS connector 90° diagnostics LED is equipped with a proven and reliable screw terminal.

It is quickly mounted and has integrated, connectable terminating resistors.
For improved EMC compatibility, the housing of the plug is metalized.
Using the PROFIBUS connector diagnosis, a PROFIBUS network can be established in which the user can at any time check the state of the bus system at a glance.
The three built-in LEDs with the easily distinguished colors blue, green, and orange indicate the most important states of the PROFIBUS network at each station. The state of the terminating resistor (orange), whether bus activity is present (green), and whether the addressed participant is participating in the bus traffic (blue) are displayed.
In this way you can immediately recognize error states such as bus interrupts, missing or incorrectly connected terminating resistors, and malfunctioning or failed bus participants.
The PROFIBUS connector works in the extended ambient temperature range of -25 °C to +85 °C.
