Sponsor Profile 44 Industrial Networks: The basis for digitalization Setting trends, opening up new areas, breaking down barriers – industrial communication is the basis for automation and digitalization today and in the future. Siemens is the specialist for small, medium and large industrial network infrastructures. industrial ethernet book 04.2017 SIEMENS OFFERS CUSTOMER individual network solutions including professional services, trainings as well as products for this purpose. Developing field-proven technology even further, breaking new ground, and opening up new media for industrial communications. Setting trends Today Siemens fully relies on Industrial Ethernet and PROFINET, the open Industrial Ethernet Standard of PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI), more than 10 million installed nodes in the field already today. This is demonstrated by Siemens by means of a comprehensive range of products for PROFINET such as automation systems, drive systems, identification systems , and network components such as Industrial Ethernet Switches, Industrial modems and routers, Industrial Security Modules as well as Industrial Wireless LAN (IWLAN) Access Points. With IWLAN from Siemens based on PROFINET wireless communication also can be realized for safety applications via PROFIsafe. Future proof network designs Siemens designs industrial network infrastructures to master both today’s challenges and future customer requirements. Data networks for rough environments, high availability and redundancy, connectivity to existing enterprise IT are Siemens’ daily business. Breaking down barriers Industrial Wireless LAN (IWLAN) replaces obsolete communication paths via contact conductors or tow chains and permits applications such as mobile operation with integrated emergency stop functionality. Experience with Industrial Wireless LAN devices has shown that time critical, cyclical communication is possible. Even safety signals can be exchanged wirelessly. Integrated communication PROFINET and Industrial Ethernet permit a unique integration from the field level through the cell aggregations, the industrial backbone all the way up to the enterprise level. And enable the secure connection to a cloud system like MindSphere (the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens). For example, the SCALANCE M industry router and the SCALANCE S security modules permit secure access to a plant network via mobile radio and the internet. The plant’s Industrial Ethernet is connected by means of SCALANCE X switches and thus permits access to controllers and PROFINET field devices, for example via web servers. Specific tools for servicing and diagnostics e.g. Sinema Server complement the portfolio. Rugged communications RUGGEDCOM is a product line of network components for Industrial Ethernet for mission-critical applications even in the harshest environments. The highly specialized, robust RUGGEDCOM switches and routers fully comply with industry standards, e.g. IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613. They meet the toughest EMC, shock and vibration resistance standards, while operating at a temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. The innovative RUGGEDCOM portfolio sets the trend for future proof network solutions including edge computing with it’s multi-protocol intelligent node the RX1400 while also preparing your network to connect directly into MindSphere, the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens.
