The manufacturing plant floor is undergoing dramatic changes that require businesses to adopt new strategies to fully utilize industrial Ethernet through things such as advanced motor controls and control architectures to improve efficiencies, increase productivity and drive out costs. The increasing number of Ethernet nodes on the plant floor and the need to measure productivity in real-time are frequent challenges. Greater use of Ethernet-connected advanced controllers, computers and high-speed motion control and power electronics require new design strategies beyond traditional panel selection and layout to ensure the automation systems deliver improved network performance and accommodate an increasing use of industrial Ethernet managed switches and networked devices.
