Ethernet: The Choice for Industrial Applications

According to the annual HMS Industrial Networks study, Ethernet became the number one platform for automation networks. Due to its ability for greater speed, bandwidth, flexibility and scalability, Ethernet offers benefits that traditional fieldbus installations can’t.

First introduced in 1980 and standardized three years later as IEEE 802.3, Ethernet connects a number of computer-based components to form a local area network, metropolitan area network or wide area network. This enables multiple devices to have access to the network for the exchange of data, audio or video transmissions.

In the industrial world, these transmissions might be running production lines, monitoring surveillance camera feeds, enabling WiFi onboard trains or buses or controlling pipeline flow for water or utility plants.
