Industrial automation has received a considerable attention in the last few years with the rise of Internet of Things (IoT. [] Key Method Furthermore, a suitable Human Machine Interface (HMI) has also been developed for quick access to our framework. The HMI at the client side can directly communicate with the NetJury device and parameters such as, required load amount, number of packet(s) to be sent or desired time duration can be selected using the HMI.


Large PROFINET IO RT networks for factory automation: A case study
The paper presents a case study regarding a real PROFINET IO network for factory automation, which has a high number of distributed IO, actuators and sensors, its topology is complex, and it is fully operative (in-production).
An FPGA based HSR architecture for seamless PROFINET redundancy
The presented architecture is highly configurable and can be mapped both to high-end and low-end FPGAs and therefore fulfills industrial requirements.

Two possible integration concepts of the PROFINET IO realtime Ethernet standard are described using INTERBUS and PROFIBUS as an example to show that it is possible, despite very different device models of the considered fieldbus systems, to implement a high level of integration.
Towards autoconfiguration of industrial automation systems: A case study using Profinet IO
A novel approach for the autoconfiguration of real-time Ethernet systems, and all relevant mechanisms is presented and a case study, based on Profinet IO, evaluates the approach and shows its feasibility.
PLC Communication using PROFINET: Experimental Results and Analysis
Tests were performed to determine the performance of the peer-to-peer communication mechanism, to evaluate the impact of switches on the system, and to measure theimpact of data size on peer- to- peer communication performance.
A methodology for reliability of WSN based on software defined network in adaptive industrial environment
Experiments have shown that the improved approach significantly reduces the energy consumption of nodes and the delay time, thus improving the reliability of WSN, and proposes a framework called the improved software defined wireless sensor network U+0028 improved SD-WSN U-0029.
Performance Aspects of PROFINET IO
The paper introduces the PROFinET technology and discusses performance aspects and it is expected that PROFINET IO will play a major role on the PLC market since it is a possible replacement for PROFIBUS DP.
FPGA Implementation of Wireless LAN System for Factory Automation
The implementation results of MAC and PHY layer of the proposed system show that FPGA logic utilization can fit with the target FPGAs which is promising for a full implementation and evaluation combining with radio frequency.
Performance Analysis of Profibus DP and Profinet in a Motion Control Application
Conclusions show that Profibus DPV0 is faster; however, Profinet version IRT has higher determinism, and both achieved settling time that could accomplish the application.
