At SPS 2019, Analog Devices will demonstrate industrial connectivity solutions that feature scalability and robustness for today’s Industrial Ethernet networks and tomorrow’s TSN-based networks. This portfolio of Industrial Ethernet solutions will advance the state-of-the-art in edge connectivity, data integration, synchronization, and system interoperability. It will address communication challenges within Industry 4.0, Smart Factories, and the digital transformation.
Three demonstrations will take place during the event. The first one will shed light on the deployment of Ethernet using one of today’s industrial protocols in a time critical synchronized motion application. The second one will illustrate how the same functionality can be achieved using TSN to carry both standard Ethernet traffic and time-critical traffic in a converged network, enabling seamless factory upgrades and flexible manufacturing. The last one will focus on ADI’s leadership role in enabling Ethernet to the Field, and will demonstrate the new IEEE P802.3cg/10BASE-T1L physical layer standard communicating over 1km of single twisted pair cable. This will enable Ethernet connectivity to various field instruments with a combination of industrial Ether protocols running simultaneously.
