With Fast Start-up, PROFINET allows the implementation of modular concepts without a waiting period.
The Fast Start-Up function allows rapid start-up of PROFINET Devices that are connected to SIMATIC Controllers. The communication connection between the controller and the device is established in less than a second. Thus, in modular plants, individual parts of the plant can be coupled and decoupled in minimal time. A concrete example application: Tools in robotic applications are changed significantly faster.
