PROFICLOUD is the intelligent solution for the industry

PROFICLOUDThe PROFICLOUD system enables easy and secure communication and control of machines and systems across different locations worldwide. The unique combination of the proven PROFINET standard and Cloud services offers brand new possibilities for automation, including in the Industrie 4.0 environment.

Distributed automation becomes significantly easier with the cloud system, regardless of where your network devices are located. This enables manufacturers to monitor the status of their systems installed anywhere in the world. The evaluation of the data gathered shows, for example, potential failures at an early stage, thereby saving time and money.

Your advanatges

  • You may extend your PROFINET network to include PROFICLOUD services, without requiring any further specialist knowledge
  • Maximum flexibility, thanks to automation across border, from any location, via the internet
  • Easy engineering, as distributed devices and PROFICLOUD network services appear in the local PROFINET network
  • Efficient automation, thanks to preconfigured and preprogrammed PROFICLOUD products
  • Secure communication, thanks to TLS encryption

Furthermore, you can call up data and store it using the cloud services. In addition to current electricity tariffs or the local time, you can also integrate weather data or complex calculations into the PROFINET application.

PHOENIX CONTACT helped shape the trend towards Ethernet-based automation technology from an early stage. Our many years of expertise influence all our products developments, from connectors to programmable logic controllers. By developing our own technology for ASICs, PROFINET controllers or PROFIsafe, we are able to be independent while still ensuring full compatibility with the standard.
