Industrial Ethernet is still an emerging technology for automation applications. This section explains the different application areas for which this technology is suited. Read through our customer application reviews to learn more about the successful, profitable use of industrial Ethernet. The white papers help to answer technical questions on this topic.
Balancing ballast on-board a ship – a state-of-the-art process uses Ethernet to communicate
Ethernet communications are being implemented more and more in the shipbuilding industry. Industrial Ethernet is not just being used for entertainment but also for the control and IT systems used for on-board communication. The following review from the company S-TWO illustrates this point.
Application Notes describe the concrete implementation of a function or application with Industrial Ethernet components from Weidmüller. Specific wiring diagrams and configuration instructions will guide you through the entire integration.
In Dual-Ring two neighbouring rings are connected with one another using one switch without the need for additional ports or cabling. This configuration reduces the total number of ports and saves cabling costs as an additional primary and back-up line is not needed.
Turbo-Chain offers the possibility of creating multiple redundant networks without the limitations of the ring technology. Turbo-Chain can be simply configured by defining two end-points in a segment. This means you can connect or extend existing redundant networks.
