Network the office world with the industrial world: you will then be able to access your machine data at any time and from any location.
Do you want to control your automation using familiar mechanisms? EtherNet/IP™ (Ethernet Industrial Protocol) is an open industrial fieldbus system. It is specified and maintained by the ODVA (Open DeviceNet™ Vendors Association). In addition, EtherNet/IP™ is standardized in the IEC 61158 series of international standards.
You can rely on an open and widely used fieldbus system: with EtherNet/IP™, the CIP (Common Industrial Protocol) is used via the conventional Ethernet network.
What this means for you:
With a modular design
Our bus couplers for EtherNet/IP™ enable the operation of modular I/O stations in the control cabinet or in the field. With regard to the architecture, the fieldbus coupler is a slave in the EtherNet/IP™ network and the master in the local bus.
Maximum flexibility: with the Inline Modular automation kit, form follows function. Design each I/O as requested and save space in the control cabinet.
Modular in the field: I/O devices in the Fieldline Modular series offer maximum freedom for field installation. Functional and can be customized to your application.
With a block design
Extremely robust: the devices in the Axioline E series with a block design for EtherNet/IP™ always provide an individual solution thanks to the different housing versions and a wide range of functions.
In addition to standard digital functions, IO-Link communication also provides maximum flexibility here.
Our isolators are used for electrical isolation up to 4 kV in copper-based Ethernet networks. You can therefore protect your Ethernet devices and interfaces. This significantly increases immunity to interference under industrial conditions.
Our industrial switches have multicast filter and querier functions for optimum EtherNet/IP™ support. These functions can be used to forward data packets to only those devices that also require the data. This minimizes the data load in the network and ensures a high level of availability.
The Advanced Managed Switches in the 7000 series are the first Industrial Ethernet switches to support the Device Level Ring (DLR) redundancy mechanism specified in EtherNet/IP™. This lets you achieve maximum system availability through nearly seamless switch-over in less than 3 ms in the event of supply systems failures and integrate multiple non-DLR-enabled devices into a DLR ring.
For easy configuration and diagnosis directly in the EtherNet/IP™ control system, the Advanced Managed Switches support the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP).
