An industrial network is a network that consists of physical components that conduct data transfer among computers and other devices.
In an industrial environment, the network must handle large volumes of data while connecting to many systems. The data transfer rates are optimized to the demands of PLCs and other devices, with near real-time responses required in some cases.
Industrial networks are usually designed to be quite robust as the working environment is generally harsher than what other conventional networks are put under.
Ethernet is the common technology for connecting devices in a wired local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). It enables devices in a network to communicate with each other via a protocol.
EtherNet/IP is an industrial network protocol that adapts the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) to standard Ethernet. It allows you to connect to field sensors, devices, controllers, and control systems that are on the same network.
EtherCAT is an Ethernet-based fieldbus system that was developed by Beckhoff Automation. It makes machines and systems faster, simpler, and more cost-effective by combining the advantages of Ethernet with the simplicity of classic fieldbus systems.
DeviceNet is a network protocol developed by Allen-Bradley that is used in the automation industry to interconnect control devices for data exchange. It utilises the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) over a Controller Area Network (CAN) layer.
Profinet is an open Industrial Ethernet solution built on international standards and Ethernet technology. It is a communication protocol designed to exchange data between controllers and devices in an automation setting.
Common Problems With Industrial Data Cabling
Some of the common causes of industrial network problems are power failure, cable failure, earthing and shielding problems, electrostatic damage to the communications ports, IP address clash, software crash, and electrical surges.
Commercial networks are large networks compromising both wired and wireless technologies. Commercial networks use similar protocols, networking topology, and services as standard home networks, but on a much larger scale.
