The specific properties of IO devices are described by the manufacturer in a GSD(ML) file (General Station Description) in XML format. The file is used by a development environment as the basis for communication between a Profinet IO system.

In practice, the integration of the specific properties into the development environment, for example of a PLC, functions technically without problems. However, the programmer always needs some experience in selecting and implementing the data exchange.  

This is even more convenient with the new PROFINET PLC program blocks for the 99spne device series. This provides a selection of ready-made data blocks that can be easily integrated into the system and provide effortless access to the data of the KFM IO devices:

In most cases, the standard module is sufficient for reading up to 2 actual values and writing the bus setpoint including relevant digital information. In addition, there are modules for complete readout as well as for reading digital received values, setting relays and customer-specific modules.

Neue Stahlguss- und Edelstahlventile in KFM-Design

Cast steel and stainless steel valves in KFM design for applications up to 450 °C.


It is generally known that controls can also take on regulation tasks. The reverse has been less popular until now, even though this often offers significant advantages. Lately, however, the trend is increasingly away from a PLC in a dominant and all-encompassing role and more towards distributed intelligence.

The new industrial controller- series KFM 903.. combines the illustration facilities and advantages of modern TFT displays with the high reliability of proven industrial hardware in a perfect way.
