PI North America recently held a successful webinar answering the top 7 questions they receive about PROFINET. Here's a recap of the questions and their answers. Also, watch the archived recording for lots more information and a live demonstration, plus download the slides.
What exactly is 10BASE-T1L, what advantages does this technology offer, and why is it a new standard? What Does 10BASE-T1L mean? Can I also implement the power supply to the devices via the two wires? Learn the basics and more in this article.
While fieldbus wiring has become decentralized, power supply wiring has stuck to the central wiring approach. New standards such as «M12-Power» now allow the power supply to follow the network wiring. This structured wiring for power and bus can be well described as «Power follows Bus».
IO-Link is enjoying increasing popularity, with demand for the communications standard growing rapidly, especially in the food & beverage industry and other process control related industries. The fieldbus-independent technology for point-to-point communication is easy to use and cost-effective.
Admittedly, the creation of installation guidelines seems tedious and dry at first glance, but it’s rewarded in day-to-day practice. Users benefit from clear specifications on the installation of PI technologies.
Learn how Time-Sensitive Networking brings determinism to Ethernet—from time synchronization and prioritization to preemption and boundary ports. It can be complex; even Ethernet today, if you were intimately aware of its inner workings, is quite complex. And yet, Ethernet is incredibly easy to use. The same applies to TSN features.
Process plants must be safe for people, products and the environment. Ethernet is the de facto communication standard, but it does not meet the requirements of process automation without modification. Ethernet with an Advanced Physical Layer (Ethernet-APL) enables long cable lengths, explosion protection, communication and power supply over two wires.
We have observed an increase in indoor localization demand in logistics and production, accompanied by an increase in RTLS providers. Within those providers, who enables the more significant competitive edge? What is the difference in customer value between proprietary RTLS providers and omlox?
