Ethernet backbone improves design, implementation, and lifecycle management of safety and basic process control systems

Ethernet communications has become pervasive in today’s technological environment. Data from Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS), and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) are routinely gathered together, ransmitted between islands of automation, and served to upper level Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). Now this flexible, high-speed, low-cost communications layer is being introduced at the lowest level of control system architecture — the rack.
