Industrial Ethernet Networks

Industrial Ethernet on the plant floor has gained mass acceptance across multiple industries. Designed to create the real-time seamless flow of information between the plant floor and the back office. Industrial Ethernet networks are also becoming an integral part of real-time control systems for process control and discrete manufacturing applications.

All major manufacturers of DCS (Distributed Control Systems) and PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) support Ethernet communications on their devices and have made support for Ethernet networking and Ethernet based protocols (e.g. EtherNet/IP, ProfiNet, Modbus TCP) a major feature of their product and system offerings.

 

RuggedRouter® and Cyber Security

Cyber Security from the corporate network to the plant floor or the SCADA system is of critical importance in protecting your critical plant infrastructure from malicious cyber attack or tampering. These attacks can often occur from within the plant or from the corporate network side and can bring down the entire network, unless protection and segregation from the corporate network traffic and problems are provided. RuggedCom’s Industrially Hardened RuggedRouter® RX1000 provides integrated firewall and VPN (Virtual Private Network) protection against cyber attacks to your plant floor network.
