More detailed Information about the interesting technology sector Industrial Ethernet.
The ARC (Automatic Ring Configuration) is a very easy, fast and safe way to automatically configure an Ethernet Ring therefore reduces the configuration effort and the risk of misconfiguration.
The Tofino Industrial Security Solution is a distributed security solution that quickly and cost-effectively implements cyber security protection within your control network.
Network management is a key component of network availability. Therefore having access to the information provided by a network management system is critical.
EMC-resistant fieldbus communication with seamless media redundancy.
Watertight, dust resistant and shock proofed switches for harsh environments and mobile applications.
Approvals for environments where a risk of explosion may be present.
Approvals for road- and rail vehicles and ships.
OpenBAT devices also have integrated ESD protection which significantly increases lifetime of the devices. The integration of ESD protection additionally saves installation space and cost.
MiMo is one of the technologies featured in the WLAN stanard 802.11n. It uses multiple antennas for silutaneous transmission and reception of WLAN signals.
For coverage of WLAN in areas where no Ethertnet cable to each Access Point is possible, WDS (Wireless Distribution System) and Mesh networking allow to set up reliable and redundant multi hop topologies.
WLAN clients moving in an area or along a track need to hand over between the Access Points. This roaming procedure leads to short interruption of network communication. Hirschmann™ BAT devices support fast roaming between 50ms and 100ms (depending on the used security scheme).
Redundancy methods are essential requirements for high-availability Ethernet networks in the industry.
MRP (Media Redundancy Protocol) is a standardized redundancy protocol according to IEC 62439 which provides reconfiguration times up to the single digit millisecond range.
