Fieldbus Gateway Supports Industrial Ethernet Protocols Such As PROFINET, EtherNet/IP And EtherCAT

Advantech EKI-1242 Modbus RTU-TCP to EtherCAT Fieldbus GatewayAdvantech, a supplier of industrial communication solutions, launched their new Fieldbus Gateway EKI-1242 series.

The Fieldbus gateways are designed for reliable protocol extensibility and seamless integration with existing network devices. The EKI-1242 series support widely used industrial protocols such as PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT for field device integration. They help plant managers create a seamless interconnection between industrial protocols, making the usage of existing field devices more flexible. Also, they efficiently connect field devices to Ethernet network infrastructure, providing redundant and management functions for central management.

By implementing Advantech’s Fieldbus solution, traditional factories can be transformed into intelligent green plants. With the features of integration, flexibility, and connectivity, Advantech Fieldbus gateways and WebAccess/NMS and WebAccess/SCADA bring seamless conversion between individual industrial protocols and allow the connection of devices with different protocols for diagnosis, analysis, and management.


Industrial Communication SystemsThe Industrial Electronics Handbook, Second Edition, Industrial Communications Systems combines traditional and newer, more specialized knowledge that helps industrial electronics engineers develop practical solutions for the design and implementation of high-power applications. Embracing the broad technological scope of the field, this collection explores fundamental areas, including analog and digital circuits, electronics, electromagnetic machines, signal processing, and industrial control and communications systems. It also facilitates the use of intelligent systems―such as neural networks, fuzzy systems, and evolutionary methods―in terms of a hierarchical structure that makes factory control and supervision more efficient by addressing the needs of all production components.

Enhancing its value, this fully updated collection presents research and global trends as published in the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics Journal, one of the largest and most respected publications in the field. Modern communication systems in factories use many different―and increasingly sophisticated―systems to send and receive information. Industrial Communication Systems spans the full gamut of concepts that engineers require to maintain a well-designed, reliable communications system that can ensure successful operation of any production process.
