PROCESS AUTOMATION FOR THE FUTURE
SETTING NEW STANDARDS FOR DIGITALISATION IN THE PROCESS INDUSTRY
Digitalisation has become synonymous with progress and development in the process industry. Its overarching aim is to establish intelligent human-machine and machine-machine networking for efficient process automation. Process monitoring and diagnostic data evaluation all the way out into the field play a key role here. This is even more true in hazardous areas.
New concepts such as NAMUR Open Architecture (NOA) and the Open Process Automation Standard (O-PAS™) require a powerful, flexible infrastructure. A network standard that offers high bandwidths and fast transfer rates in the field – and all that with simple installation.
The solution? Ethernet Advanced Physical Layer, or short Ethernet-APL – the future international standard for Ethernet in the field.
