Industry Group Pushes for Free Open-Source Ethernet Standard for Machine CommunicationsIndustry Group Pushes for Free Open-Source Ethernet Standard for Machine Communications
June 10, 2015
As we are on the cusp of the Industrial Internet of Things and its extensive connectivity potential, one organization believes that industrial machinery and components can communicate data rapidly and reliably among themselves, system controllers, and ultimately to their human overseers via an open-source, software-based Ethernet communication standard.
This organization, Ethernet Powerlink Standardization Group (EPSG), supports Ethernet Powerlink, which was developed in 2001 by B&R Industrial Automation and links PLCs, I/O devices, sensors, motion controls and actuators, and HMI (human-machine interface) systems.
