Single-pair Ethernet: Enhanced cloud access to sensors and peripherals

Single-pair Ethernet, as a new initiative to enable IP based networks to each sensor, adds value through thinner cabling, small footprint plugs and connectors and less space requirements. For that reason, it is suitable to replace numerous existing fieldbuses in the sensor and peripheral area by integrating sensors directly to IT- and Cloudsystems. This Blogseries discusses the status and progress of single-pair Ethernet from Hilscher’s point of view.

Cybersecurity of manufacturing networks with CIP Security and netX 90

The protection against cyberattacks has become one of the most important topics in the age of digitalization. Companies have to protect themselves against malicious attacks from the outside. Attackers are smart and learned that corporate IT systems are well protected; however, manufacturing networks are much less well safeguarded. I/O networks are mostly unprotected what can cause e.g. message tampering, communication eavesdropping or unauthorized communication.
