Hilscher announces support for PROFINET @ TSN technology

December 20, 2018 – Hilscher, a manufacturer of industrial communication solutions, has announced support for PROFINET @ TSN technology on its portfolio of netX multiprotocol network controllers. netX is a single-chip ASIC that provides a master and/or slave communication connection to all Industrial Ethernet systems, fieldbuses and Industry 4.0 protocols.

Hilscher has offered PI technology communication solutions for many years, beginning with PROFIBUS and including PROFINET RT and IRT, both for controllers as well as devices. With PROFINET @ TSN they see a future strategy for PI technology in Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications.

With netX’s software-defined multiprotocol interface, Hilscher currently supports the Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) protocol. This TSN deployment on netX has proven successful over the last several years in Testbeds from the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and Labs Network Industrie 4.0 (LNI4.0).

Since the netX chip can be made TSN-capable by simple software updates, it was a logical next step for Hilscher to implement PROFINET @ TSN.
