Multiprotocol Ethernet

What are the benefits of Industrial Ethernet?

Industrial Ethernet benefits users by utilizing tools and techniques familiar to traditional office communication systems, and extending them to industrial applications. This facilitates data transfer across the entire plant floor - as well as plant-to-plant and globally - via secure network connections.
