Industrial Ethernet


Information technology is becoming increasingly important in industrial systems. Users should be able to call up technical
product data at every PC in the company at the touch of a button, without additional manufacturer-specific software. At the
same time, vertical data communication with the control level should be broadly available, as should be horizontal process
data communication between the controller and the application (e.g. drive inverters).
ETHERNET – A bus system with numerous benefits:

  • Vertical and horizontal communication using Industrial ETHERNET

  • Real-time capable process data communication between the controller and drive engineering (soft real time) with 10 process
    data words (each direction)

  • Fast data transfer with 100 Mbit/s

  • Diagnostics for drive technology via Internet Explorer

  • Programming and diagnostics for the drive technology can be carried out via ETHERNET, which makes remote maintenance easy
    to handle

  • Broadband data communication between the control level and field level

  • Control and engineering combined in one bus system, saving costs for installation and maintenance

  • Fast system integration


Process data communication by means of protocol, either PROFINET IO/RT, ETHERNET/IP or Modbus TCP, for simple and fast data
exchange between the control and field levels
Control and diagnostics via ETHERNET – local operation, diagnostics and maintenance at the field level
Integrated web server to diagnose the drive technology via Internet Explorer
Central data backup at control level
Parameter setting and programming using MOVITOOLS® MotionStudio via ETHERNET
Reduction of installation costs and maintenance due to installation of only one diagnostic bus
