Softing Industrial Offers New Access to PROFINET Networks:

Softing announced an expansion to its SmartLink product line with the introduction of two innovative additions: the smartLink HW-PN and the smartLink SW-PN, designed to facilitate access to PROFINET networks. These new products are set to be unveiled at the forthcoming Emerson Exchange event in Düsseldorf, running from February 27 to 29. They will be showcased alongside Emerson’s AMS Device Manager, marking a significant collaboration between Softing Industrial and Emerson.

The introduction of smartLink HW-PN and smartLink SW-PN represents a strategic enhancement of Softing Industrial’s portfolio, extending its capabilities in bridging the gap between operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT). Building on the success of the existing smartLink HW-DP hardware solution and the smartLink SW-HT software, which catered to PROFIBUS and HART systems, the latest smartLinks offer targeted access to PROFINET networks. This development underscores Softing Industrial’s commitment to enabling seamless industrial connectivity and will be a highlight at the Emerson Exchange later this month.
