Device replacement

As PROFINET uses a unique name to address every device, a name is assigned to each device during startup (device naming).

Automated device replacement  

PROFINET controllers are quick and easy to replace

If a device is replaced, this name must be transferred to the new component, e.g., using a plug-in memory card. This procedure can be simplified for PROFINET controllers.

New devices are usually added to a topology without a name. The controller writes the old name to the replacement device automatically within a few seconds. After this, the device is addressed automatically and is ready for operation again after just a few seconds.

This automatic method of replacing devices saves the user a lot of time compared to manual device naming.
