Industrial communication technology

Industrial ethernet facts

Industrial ethernet enables the networking of industrial equipment; a data transmission in real time. A speed of up to 1,000 Mbit/s ensures rapid and uniform real-time protocol, thereby creating a collision-free transmission method. By using Industrial Ethernet switches in an existing Ethernet LAN, devices can be added, which are used for control and monitoring of production processes. These can be installed in a loop, so that even if a line fails, the network can continue to operate without restriction. Industrial Ethernet offers an innovative alternative to conventional fieldbuses.

Application of industrial ethernet

Industrial ethernets are used mainly in the following areas:

  • Automation technology
  • Renewable energy
  • Machine production
  • Shipbuilding
  • Systems for public transport
  • Robotics

Although still an emerging technology, Industrial Ethernet is paving the way for a unified communication standard.
