TSN AS NEW STANDARD FOR
THE INDUSTRIAL WORLD
Industrial communication must be fast, real-time capable and standardized so companies can meet the challenges of modern industrial automation. WAGO stays a step ahead with its two new automation solutions, the I/O-Systems Advanced and Field for Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN). High performance and consistency throughout the network infrastructure are the decisive advantages conferred by the new communication standard.
Efforts are underway around the world to develop communication solutions for real-time and sensor-to-cloud applications in industrial environments. The promising approaches include the future industry standard, Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN), with the goal of expanding conventional ETHERNET with the capabilities required for real-time transmission of data – with a bandwidth of multiple gigabits. In combination with the manufacturer-independent communication protocol OPC UA, it allows fast, easy, secure use of information across different manufacturer systems. The WAGO I/O System Advanced and the I/O System Field are ready for OPC UA and TSN.
The advantages of TSN OPC UA:
- Ensures high-performance isochronous communication
- Allows plug-and-produce scenarios through the combination of deterministic communication and information modeling
- One technology allows all application cases through manufacturer-independence and a broad range of uses
- Is fully compatible with the existing Ethernet standard
