"The Future of TSN in Industrial Networks"

Tom Weingartner, Director, Embedded Networking Solutions and Jordon Woods, Director, Deterministic Ethernet TG

Over the past few years the ground swell of interest in Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and the drive to Industry 4.0 has placed industrial systems on a clear path to migrate to TSN-based technology. What is not so clear is the direction TSN is headed because of its diverse set of specifications – TSN has become many things to many people. In order to set a course for TSN in industrial systems and have a common set of specifications, industry has come together in an unprecedented level of cooperation to define an “industrial profile” under the direction of the IEC/IEEE 60802 Joint Working Group. This presentation focuses on the future and what it takes to make the deployment of TSN in industrial networks a reality.

"The Future of Ethernet Physical Layers in Industrial Systems"

Maurice O’Brien, Strategic Marketing Manager, Industrial Connectivity

As industrial systems increasingly adopt Ethernet connectivity, enhanced Ethernet physical layer technology is required to enable reliable operation in harsh industrial conditions, over extended ambient temperatures. G-bit real-time Ethernet communications requires low latency while sensor/actuator applications require low power whilst supporting single twisted pair cabling up to 1km (10BASE-T1L). This presentation discusses new Ethernet physical layer technologies for tomorrow’s Industrial communications systems.

"The Future of Process Control Connectivity"

Jonathan Law, Director, Process Control

The process control market has been dominated by 4-20mA control loops since the 1950’s with very good reason, but now we see the emergence of an Ethernet based standard that is likely to dramatically change the market in the near future. This presentation discusses the transition to 10BASE-T1L and likely deployment scenarios.

Synchronized Motion Control over Gigabit TSN Network

One highlight at ADI´s booth was our innovative Gigabit (Gbit) Time sensitive network (TSN) connectivity solution that can be used for a wide variety of applications. Our demonstration for servo and robotics applications showcased both standard Ethernet traffic and time-critical traffic in a converged network, enabling seamless factory upgrades and flexible manufacturing. Also, see how ADI’s security approach provides encryption and authentication on top of Gbit TSN technology.

Partner Demonstrations at the ODVA Booth and the PI Booth

EtherNet/IP over the new 10BASE-T1L Ethernet Standard

Visitors at the ODVA stand had the chance to see a first ever demonstration of IEEE’s 802.3cg Ethernet standard (T1L) and ODVA’s EtherNet/IP protocol using ADI Industrial Ethernet solutions. The demonstration showed IO that was controlled over a 10BASE-T1L Ethernet link from across the hall at the ADI Stand using a Rockwell Automation PLC supporting the EtherNet/IP protocol. In addition to demonstrating 10BASE-T1L’s long distance capability, the IO devices were also powered over the 10BASE-T1L link. Intrinsic Safe operation can be added as an option.

RapID Platform Generation 2 with PROFINET

At the PI Stand, we demonstrated ADI’s next generation PROFINET network interface solution. The RapID Platform Generation 2 (RPG2) has an improved, more compact form factor while reducing power and increasing PROFINET protocol processing performance. The demonstration showed compatibility with Siemens PLCs while emphasizing ease of use in field device applications. RPG2 supports RT, IRT, and MRP with future support for PROFINET@TSN.
