Industrial networks run everything from outdoor utility plants to complex indoor manufacturing lines. Temperatures race up and down the thermometer, creating stress on the network components that run mission-critical operations.
Ordinary devices that might perform just fine in a temperature-controlled office setting won’t hold up to the extremes of an industrial environment.
Instead, trust Belden for the rugged, industrial-grade network components with a demonstrated track record of success in harsh environments. You’ll find a complete portfolio of options to meet any application challenge.
No matter if you’re using a newer EtherNet/IP, PROFINET or EtherCAT protocol or an older fieldbus or other serial protocol, don’t let temperature disrupt your connections.
With ruggedized designs and hardened exteriors, connectivity products from Lumberg Automation and Hirschmann ensure that your network keeps you running strong.
Lumberg Automation and Hirschmann have a history of premium quality connectivity products, with temperature ratings ranging from -40°C to +125°C.
Extreme temps on either end of the thermometer can diminish functionality in switches, routers and wireless access points – whether fully exposed or in control cabinets. The external casing becomes brittle and fractures while internal parts simply stop working.
Turn to Hirschmann and GarrettCom for active networking components specially designed and rated for resiliency, no matter how harsh the conditions.
In the age of the Internet of Things, OT networks that were once closed and inaccessible are now exposed to more risk. It’s more important than ever to ensure not only edge security, but Layer 2 and Layer 3 security, too.
With Tofino Security, Hirschmann and Tripwire devices and software, you can assess, monitor and protect your critical assets, even in harsh temperatures.
