All types of control architectures inevitably require and include communication solutions like e.g. Real-Time Ethernet and/or fieldbus communication.
Due to the continuous increase of data which will be exchanged between the control level and field devices (like e.g. Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) or I/Os), the requirement profile is changing for machines or plants. Device manufacturer are aiming to integrate more and more intelligence into single network devices to meet requirements like high data volumes, fast update of I/O data or network overlapping exchange of diagnosis information.
Products from Hilscher enable:
- the extension of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) for industrial network communication
- the selection of modular and scalable network connections
- the creation of flexible connections of industrial networks for any kind of backplane system
