To meet industrial requirements such as availability, real–time capability and robustness, the exchange of data must function as free of interference as possible and with minimal loss. Industry–standard connection technologies, network structures, PROFINET, and Industrial Security aid in meeting these requirements.
This book conveys the fundamentals and terminology for the use of Industrial Ethernet and communication buses in industrial automation to plant planners and operators, programmers, and commissioning engineers. Readers learn how network configuration and diagnostics are implemented and what must be observed in terms of Industrial Security. Using realistic examples, beginners, newcomers, and those who want to brush up on their skills can familiarize themselves with, understand, and apply the basics of communication protocols.
