Engineering-driven Ethernet

From its industrial introduction as an IT-driven project to connect plant-floor and front-office systems on a common corporate network, Ethernet has since evolved for engineering-specific applications. This transformation is leading Ethernet to become a preferred industrial network platform widely used in mission-critical discrete and process manufacturing applications.

From its industrial introduction as an IT-driven project to connect plant-floor and front-office systems on a common corporate network, Ethernet has since evolved for engineering-specific applications. This transformation is leading Ethernet to become a preferred industrial network platform widely used in mission-critical discrete and process manufacturing applications.

With industrial Ethernet gaining such rapid acceptance, this Control Engineering roundtable Webcast addresses the engineering issues you should be aware of when exploring the adoption of Ethernet or when looking to expand its use in your facility. Topics covered include:

  • Connecting legacy protocols;

  • Gigabit Ethernet;

  • Deterministic application; and

  • Use in real-time control.

Panelists: Joey Stubbs, EtherCAT Technology Group, Ed Nabrotzky, Molex, Eddie Lee, Moxa, Bruce Hofmann, Weidmüller. Moderator: David Greenfield, Control Engineering .
