Improving Ethernet technology can enable the better coordination of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) communications and improve reliability.
Key development tools and standards ensure interoperability among many EtherCAT devices and manufacturers.
Picking the right industrial Ethernet protocol for communications can give vendors, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and system integrators an advantage.
HART over 4-20mA remains ubiquitous throughout process industries, and the experience gained using this protocol will speed the transition to HART-IP over Ethernet-APL.
Specifications internationally standardized, conformance test plans implemented, first products released
The EtherCAT Technology Group is used as the standard for connectivity across many manufacturing industries.
IoT communication protocols provide users with enhanced security and efficiency and can help bring the worlds of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) together.
Version 2.3 of the EtherCAT Conformance Test Tool is available to all EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) members via the organization’s Technical Advisory Board (TAB).
Single-pair ethernet (SPE) has been gaining attention in recent years and has many potential applications and advantages for manufacturers.
