INDUSTRIAL ETHERNET NETWORK TECHNOLOGY INCREASES YOUR IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO PLANT-FLOOR DATA

This instantaneous information helps you to make more accurate, informed decisions when it will have the most impact on your production. It also optimizes your internal assets and resources.

With our help to effectively plan your network you will be ensured of secure and reliable communication, optimal network performance, resiliency and high-availability where required.

 
DESIGN & MIGRATION SERVICES
DESIGN & MIGRATION SERVICES

Not long ago, simply daisy chaining "blue hose" across the plant floor accounted for much of what was called an industrial network. Today many still try to use a similar approach by stringing Ethernet cables or even trying to run Ethernet over blue hose. This approach, while simple in appearance, will lead to disastrous results over time.

In order to leverage today's open standards and technology an overall road map is required. This design from the bottom to the top of the plant environment, includes corporate/business network integration and firewalls. With a good design implementation, a new network can be installed during planned down time and ensure no surprises occur when multiple devices are added.

We can assist you in the implementation of your design process and help develop a phased approach utilizing that can be implemented over time with minimal downtime or production interference.

 
IMPROVE YOUR DATA ACCESS FOR REAL-TIME DECISION MAKING
IMPROVING YOUR DATA ACCESS

Many plants have bulletin boards in the hallway covered with charts and graphs - all representing what happened yesterday or the week before. The problem with this method is that you need to know what is happening right now in your facility.  Implementing a robust network design for your plant will allow for the instantaneous access and push of data to wherever you are (desk, laptop, smartphone) so you can take immediate action. You will no longer find out about problems after a shift change or the following day.  The proper person will be notified immediately which will result in issues being addressed sooner.

 
INDUSTRIAL STANDARDS

Today there are many industrial network standards that when implemented in your design can provide high availability, ease of support and implementation as well as eliminate all those evil "black boxes" scattered throughout your facility.

INDUSTRIAL STANDARDS

Some the standards that must be included in your new network are:

  • Ethernet IP
  • CIP
  • TCP/IP
  • VLAN

We can provide a wide range of networking devices designed specifically for the harshness of the plant floor giving you the information and peace of mind you need on a daily basis.

Some the standards that must be included in your new network are:

  • DIN Rail Switches/Routers
  • Cisco Technology
  • Industrial rated Ethernet cables (Copper/Fiber)
  • Industrial rated connectors and accessories
  • Industrial Data Centers
    • Keep data in one panel and controls in another
