Industrial Ethernet is widely used in the process automation industry and is now finding its way into process control instrumentation - allowing easy and standardized connection to input and output signals. Industrial Ethernet offers considerable savings and technical improvements over legacy I/O instrumentation.
Industrial Ethernet not only saves space and wiring, but also simplifies commissioning by offering highly available system integration tools. This extends to Asset Management, which allows access to information for advance maintenance and helps to avoid unnecessary service activities.
Our Ethernet HMI devices and Remote I/O systems support continuous data exchanges between DCS, field devices and operator stations.
They have thus become standard components of the plant-wide network.
The new LB/FB PROFINET gateways from Pepperl+Fuchs open the door for IIoT 4.0 applications in process industries.
