Industrial Protocol Stacks

Various open network protocols are used for communications between devices over a network in the industrial segment. There are several protocols currently existing, and they are unlikely to be merged into a single protocol. Implementing one of these protocols from scratch requires many resources. There are R-IN Consortium partners who offer protocols for industrial network.

Real-time OS and TCP/IP Stacks

Real-time OS

Real-time performance is an important factor in the industrial segment. The necessity of real-time OS is growing in response to demands for Ethernet, multi functionality, and advanced functionality. There are R-IN Consortium partners who provide support for real-time OS. They each offer their own characteristic real-time OS. For details, please contact our partners.

TCP/IP

Support for Ethernet is becoming mainstream not only in the industrial segment but in many types of networked devices. The industrial segment differs from general usage in that device size is limited, so often a more compact stack or a stack with higher speed real-time performance is required. There are R-IN Consortium partners who offer TCP/IP. You can find the most suitable TCP/IP stack for your application. For details, please contact our partners.
