Industrial Network

Overview

Industrial networks connect a variety of factory facilities and equipment. The volume of information handled by industrial networks is rapidly increasing due to demands for higher precision equipment control and centralized control for more efficient productivity. The Ethernet communications standard is widely used for industrial networks due to its affinity for information system networks, high-speed broadband nature, and excellent cost performance. Industrial applications in particular demand higher real-time response performance and environmental durability than standard Ethernet. Thus, more and more industrial networks are using industrial Ethernet protocols such as PROFINET, EtherCAT, and EtherNet/IP.

Meanwhile, devices in networks connecting sensors and actuators are nowadays becoming more compact and more precise, and use a digital communication standard called IO-Link. To meet such market needs, in addition to microcontrollers and microprocessors with integrated Ethernet controller, IO-Link transceiver, and CAN, Renesas offers industrial Ethernet controllers with multiprotocol support for high performance and high reliability communications for industrial applications.
