PI North America has introduced a comprehensive guide for PROFINET product testing and certification.

The guide is aimed toward device manufacturers and solution providers looking to implement PROFINET in devices, controllers or machines.

“As more automation component suppliers join our ranks, it is imperative we streamline the certification process for them,” says Michael Bowne, executive director at PI North America, in a statement.

The document demonstrates how testing and certification work, how to prepare for testing, and how to get a product certified.


PI North America is a non-profit, member-supported organization for PROFIBUS, PROFINET, IO-Link, and omlox technologies in North America.

PI North America collaborated with the PROFI Interface Center (PIC), a PROFIBUS and PROFINET International (PI) accredited Test Lab located in North America, to produce this resource.
