Factory automation

Connecting machines on the shop floor

In the world of factory automation Ethernet has rapidly replaced serial communications as the preferred method for communications. All factory automation equipment like PLCs, HMI, I/O blacks, inverters and drives all now have the standard RJ-45 connection.

By definition the factory floor is a tough environment for communications with high voltages often being switched inducing electrical fields and transients in both the power and signal lines.

Reliability and fault free operation are a prerequisite in this market as a company's entire production can be put at risk if a network should fail. Robust Industrial Data Communications is the solution.
