Smart Grid Lessons for Industrial Networks
Blog Category: Industrial Ethernet

Posted by: Industrial IT Team on May 08, 2012

Planning for the Smart Grid has had a huge impact on the way power utilities manage their operating data and control networks. The convergence of IP technology, Smart Grid imperatives and the increased need for security as characterized in the NERC CIP regulations in North America has provided an opportunity for power utilities to rethink their operating strategies and come up with innovative ways to integrate the new and the old in order to position themselves for the future. This exercise has generated a body of knowledge that is instructive for all industrial networking applications.

Choosing PoE Products for Your Industrial Network
Blog Category: Industrial Ethernet

Posted by: Industrial IT Team on May 29, 2012

This blog builds upon the recent Intro to PoE & How It Can Help Your Industrial Network post and looks at some choices in building an industrial Ethernet network that supports PoE.

PoE is having important repercussions for industrial applications. The simplicity of combining signal and power in one Ethernet cable connection contributes to the already-rapid transition to Ethernet-based industrial control systems. Wireless access devices, IP phones, surveillance cameras, and a growing number of specialty devices are available, demonstrating how PoE can help solve industrial information and control systems applications problems in innovative ways. PoE industrial sensor and controller devices are now available. While the available power in a PoE-connected device is generally limited to about 13 watts, the vast majority of modern industrial sensors take less than 10 watts. It may soon be possible to power a full SCADA system from ports on Ethernet switches, along with non-traditional devices such as phones and cameras and PCs. PoE offers the potential for an economical standards-based high-performance industrial network far beyond what is available today.

Cyber Security for Industrial Applications: Defense-in-Depth
Blog Category: Industrial Ethernet

Posted by: Industrial IT Team on June 06, 2012

With the recent proliferation of cyber attacks, it has become increasingly clear that no business or industry is safe from attack. It is well documented that cyber security threats continue to rise. While these threats once seemed to be mostly limited to attempts to access financial data, recent data indicates that cyber attacks now cut across all business sectors. Security vendor Symantec recently revealed that 75% of enterprises on a global basis witnessed some form of cyber attack during 2009.

“Control Engineering” Video - IT Students Examine Industrial Networking Security
Blog Category: Industrial Ethernet

Posted by: Industrial IT Team on June 19, 2012

This blog post was contributed by Mary Peters, a marketing intern for our industrial networking solutions division.

With the recent series of cyber attacks, including the high profile Stuxnet worm and the more recent Flame malware, industries must be more diligent than ever in providing safeguards against future attacks. As is evident in these cases, industries are becoming the bullseye for attackers, especially within the energy industry. While not every industrial network will be the target of such attacks, everyone is susceptible to security risks on some level, whether it is accidental security breaches by employees or low-level targeted tasks. The obscure nature of PLCs alone is no longer enough to keep an industrial network secure.

Smart Grid Lessons for Industrial Networks - Revisited
Blog Category: Industrial Ethernet

Posted by: Industrial IT Team on June 26, 2012

Last month, we introduced how the Smart Grid has provided an opportunity for power utilities to rethink their operating strategies and come up with innovative ways to integrate the new and the old in order to position themselves for the future. We then described the first two lessons that can be applied to any industrial networking system: Plan for scalable bandwidth to handle the steadily increasing demand for data AND Explore heavier-duty switches and routers to support expanding demands for more equipment attachments.

Want to Learn More about Industrial Wireless?
Blog Category: Industrial Ethernet

Posted by: Industrial IT Team on July 10, 2012

If you’d like to learn more about industrial wireless, two great resources are now available. The first is the June issue of Control Engineering, which features a cover story on Industrial Wireless. The cover photo and lead story feature Hirschmann industrial wireless products implemented at the PEMEX Tula Refinery in Mexico.

In this application, the refinery was able to increase efficiency and protect its critical cooling tower s with wireless monitoring and analysis of process and vibration sensor data. Belden and RYMSA, the system integrator, were able to implement the wireless products to protect critical assets and overcome serious line-of-sight issues.

To read more, visit the Control Engineering cover story online--beginning on page 30.

Still haven’t gotten enough industrial wireless?

Last month, Belden sponsored and presented in the successful webinar, “Industrial Wireless: Where and When.”

You can still register to catch the webinar that had over 500 viewers.
