This is a time where fast flowing information is of paramount interest to industries. Industrial Ethernet refers to the use of Ethernet networking in an industrial environment for automation or process control. Industrial Ethernet Products are specifically designed to work in harsh environments of varying temperatures, humidity etc. that can prove to be any kind of hindrance to information movement intended to move in a controlled environment.
Industrial Ethernet is considered to be one of the most reliable networks available for industrial automation applications. Traditional communication device like RS232 provides slow and inflexible data transfer. On the other hand Ethernet communications are reliable, fast and flexible. It provides greater bandwidth and bigger data packages for enhanced communication between devices. In order to achieve the goals of globalization and address new business opportunities, manufacturers need to improve the efficiency of the existing systems. To achieve the same, may companies are turning to Industrial Ethernet.
