The Road to Deterministic Ethernet for Industrial Automation


Ensuring a real-time, deterministic response is a must for next-level Smart Manufacturing and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). While standard Ethernet cannot support this goal per se, different solutions have been developed to build suitable industrial communication networks. Thomas Burke, global strategic advisor for CLPA, gives an overview of the history of deterministic Ethernet technologies and how TSN can be a gamechanger in industrial communications.

Rockwell Automation helps Pacific Coast Terminals enhance process safety and control

PCT set out to find a solution that would remove the cab from the boom and, instead, allow operators to control and monitor the process remotely. If the company pulled it off, it would be a first for ship loading in North America.

ODVA announces enhancements to EtherNet/IP Specification

The published enhancements to The EtherNet/IP Specification outline integration of NAMUR NE 107 diagnostics for process automation into CIP architectures. The addition of this capability provides industry standard diagnostic information for process users while leveraging the benefits of industrial Ethernet.

ODVA announces integration of IO-Link devices into The EtherNet/IP Specification

IO-Link to CIP connectivity works to reduce engineering effort and ease the acquisition of data and information, leading to a connected plant that is better able to meet the demands that IT/OT convergence are bringing to the factory floor. IO-Link devices can now be recognized within EtherNet/IP without the end user having the burden of data conversion.
