Time-sensitive networking (TSN) is intended to enable continuous communication without barriers in the machine and plant engineering of the future. Among the communication protocols, industry experts see OPC UA over TSN as the technology for Industry 4.0 and IIoT.
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.
netRAPID 90 is the fast and safe alternative to the proprietary development of a slave interface. As a netX90 chip carrier, it is soldered to the motherboard like a standard QFP component in the SMD manufacturing process.
Hilscher presents the smallest multiprotocol PC Cards on the automation market: cifX in M.2 and mini PCIe halfsize card formats.
From relevant experiences in high quality wine production and automotive fields, the idea of the CoffeeBOT democase was born in order to show how a production process can be easily implemented in the age of Smart Factories.

netX 90 is the smallest multiprotocol SoC with additional Cortex-M4 application processor and built-in security features for secure field and cloud connectivity. The energy-efficient SoC with lowest power consumption supports all Industrial Ethernet, Fieldbus and IIoT standards.
With the two newly added Industrial Ethernet protocols CC-Link IE Field for Gigabit Ethernet and CC-Link IE Field Basic for Fast Ethernet, Hilscher expands the range of its cifX PC card family as well as of its comX and netIC embedded module family.
The big announcement for the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance and the comprehensive presentation of the netFIELD technology - from the IP67 IO-Link Master to the decentralized management tool in the Cloud - were the focus of Hilscher's presence at last month's Hannover Messe 2019. There were also news about new PC cards, modules and netIOT. In this report we summarize the most important points.
The innovative netX 90 initiates a new generation of communication. In addition to all common Industrial Ethernet and fieldbus standards. The network controller also supports the IIoT standards OPC UA and MQTT. Compared to its predecessors, the netX 90 features a lower power dissipation despite of its smaller form factor. At the same time, the new technology is characterized by an architectural separation of communication and application tasks. Security functions for secure field and cloud connectivity are also natively integrated.
