This article describes how to ensure the communication with PROFIsafe and Anybus Wireless Bridge II/Bolt.
PLEASE NOTE: The Anybus Wireless have to be approved to transport PROFIsafe data over PROFINET using WLAN or Bluetooth according to the guidelines given in the PROFIsafe profile version 2.6.1.
Anybus Wireless Bridge II
Anybus Wireless Bolt

Good to know before setting up
When implementing PROFIsafe over wireless, always try to avoid roaming.
If roaming is needed, try to use Fast Roaming, 802.11r.
The Bolt/Bridge can support 802.11r when used as clients, not when used as access points.
The Bolt should be set up as L2 MAC Clone for use with Profinet/PROFIsafe.
Only one single device behind each Bolt.
! The IO cycle update time for each IO device must be set to ≥ 64 ms.
That means cycle time for one node = 64ms.
Each additional node increases the cycle time!
Cycle time = 64ms * n (n = number of nodes).
Please follow the instructions in the Startup Guide and into the User Manual - Anybus Wireless Bridge/Bolt for the correct implementation/configuration.
Anybus Wireless Bolt - Ethernet 18-pin (AWB2000)
Anybus Wireless Bolt - Ethernet RJ45 PoE (AWB2030)
Anybus Wireless Bridge II - Ethernet with int./ext. antenna (AWB3000/AWB3010)
