It is hard to image a time without reliable data flow and transparent communication regarding all production processes. The main objective of industrial communication is to connect all sections of a plant in a single networked system, from the management level right down to the field level. After all, using end-to-end, high-performance data networks increases the availability and efficiency of machines and plants. Pepperl+Fuchs sensors and field devices can be flexibly integrated into existing systems and provide transparent communication and increased productivity.
Today, industrial network communication also allows all business units to be integrated, making it a central component for the availability of data in the Industrial Internet of Things. To enable the reliable and efficient transmission of large quantities of data across all levels, Pepperl+Fuchs offers high-performance, intelligent components—including a full range of AS-Interface system components, a large selection of industrial Ethernet devices, Ethernet IO modules, various IO-Link devices, IO-Link masters, and interfaces.
