Industrial Ethernet networks

Guide, control and automation systems, which are used in various industries, require network system tailored to the specific requirements of the sector. Industrial Ethernet is a type of network solution adapted to the control systems, including automation systems.

All the elements of industrial automation (process applications, logistics solutions, building automation), and the entire infrastructure of the company, these are components of the network infrastructure in the industry in addition to office systems. The basis for conducting operational activities is effective and reliable exchange of data in real time between all system components. Increasing amount of transferred and processed data and the need for communication between all systems resulted in the necessity to create new standards for industrial networks which can ensure reliable communication not only to meet the needs of equipment used in industry, but also to provide data exchange with office infrastructure.

Modern technology based on automation is an opportunity for big progress in the optimization and the use of resources. In turn it brings significant savings in the production process.

WiFi in the industry

WiFi networks are not designed for use under difficult conditions in the industrial sector and therefore using them in industry is not easy. Industrial environment requires reliable communication in real time between devices, as well as system integration in the area of ​​administrative and integration of devices which control company’s automation. Manufacturers offer special devices designed to meet the needs of this difficult environment, but the key of wireless networks in the industry is to have an adequate infrastructure and professional project execution. Designing efficient and reliable WiFi network requires knowledge of potential interference to radio transmission and the impact of electromagnetic fields found in industry sector.

Access points and industrial switches

Enterprises need a homogenous wireless network which is open for further business development and able to work in difficult environmental conditions.

Industrial grade devices are designed for environments exposed to unfavourable electromagnetic and temperature conditions. They are perfectly suited for industry where there are a wide range of temperature and electromagnetic induction. It is important to maintain full compatibility, matching at the same time safety, reliability, performance and ease of management.

These products are recommended for companies connected with energy industry, manufacturing, control systems of transport and traffic or monitoring system. Access points and industrial switches can be installed outside of buildings and withstand harsh weather conditions.

Critical and technical alarms

Industry has to respond fast to disruptions in the production process. Machine downtime, surplus in production or delay in delivery of materials must be eliminated or reduced to a minimum.

Call systems ensure high speed communication between workers and help to avoid disaster in critical situations to protect the health and people lives, as well as eliminate losses in materials and machines. The solution involves sending alarms from all of the systems directly to the staff mobile phones. Alarms automatic escalation ensure that the alarm reaches to the right person in the shortest possible time, and the employee answers the call by taking the appropriate action.

An extensive use is possible due to the integration with: production lines, industrial automation, SCADA, fire protection systems, BMS (heating, ventilation, air conditioning), databases, ERP, access systems, CCTV systems.

One of the key solutions of this system is to ensure employees’ protection and safety. Mobile phone, with built-in fall and immobility sensors, protects life and health of staff. It sends an alert and gives the location of the person in danger. Accident notification - a text message includes identification of calling, alarm type and exact location. Each of rescuer has to confirm the call. If there is no accept or answer, the system will automatically notify another person. All the rescuers communicate on one channel. They can coordinate the rescue operation by listening to updates and informing each other about the progress of the action. The system records all operations, e.x. sending alarms, accepting calls, conversation recording the rescue action.

Other features:

  • Processes monitoring - abnormal incidents are immediately sent as a text message to operators, regardless of where they are now.
  • Shortening production downtime - information about a failure is directly sent to the appropriate person.
  • Technical alarms - provide immediate notification about system crash, so it is possible to react appropriately to avoid potential security problems and potential machines damage.

Mobile solutions and applications in industrial sector

Companies of industrial sector begin to implement mobile technologies, as they have a significant impact on the optimization and improvement of industrial processes. They are used in smaller and large factories, because of the relative ease of their adaptation in enterprises. Mobile technologies are mainly used to access to information on each of the stages of production from any place and at any time. This feature provides rapid response to incidents that may affect the efficiency, effectiveness and continuity of production.

Using mobile solutions in the industry enable to share information regardless of time and place and to provide the necessary analysis on the current processes in the various stages of production. This facilitates the management optimization of these processes as well as the communication and logistic in the organisation.

Dedicated applications, created for a specific infrastructure and its processes, support efficient management and processes, via a smartphone or tablet, regardless of the location of the administrator. This provides a real impact and faster response in case of incidents or problems and the ability to influence them remotely from anywhere by authorized users. It can eliminate the losses that otherwise can escalate very quickly at production line.

In addition data analysis,efficiency monitoring, modern mobile solutions can simplify communication, improve workflow and management of departments.

Deciding to implement mobile solutions in the enterprise you should take into account the possibility of their adaptation to the specific needs, integration with existing systems and expansion capabilities in the future. One of the most important aspects is also management of mobility and data security.
