WHITE PAPERSview all
White paper outlines a strategic vision for manufacturers looking to maintain cost-effective, sustainable production capacity in the process industries. It defines a network architecture and plan for the efficient integration of a plant's network infrastructure into existing business applications.
By Michael Robinson, Endress+Hauser
More Ethernet nodes will be connected this or any other month than will have been connected in the entire history of fieldbus. This economy of scale and the tremendous technological advancements that go along with it is what makes EtherNet/IP more capable than a fieldbus network, now and especially in the future.
This white paper provides an overview of twisted pair cable, examines the use of bonded pair cables, and compares bonded pair to non-bonded pair cable with detailed examples of cable flex and its effect on the cable itself.
