Today, wired connectivity technology still dominates the industrial landscape. Legacy serial interfaces are deployed extensively in existing factory networks to ensure uninterrupted, high performance connections. These interfaces offer simplicity but lack the advantages of direct IP addressability possible with Ethernet, which dominates at the control level. In addition, new and old equipment must coexist in the factory of the future, and the latest wired connectivity technology facilitates this interoperability.
Offering superior performance, robustness, and reach, Analog Devices’ wired connectivity solutions leverage the latest wired serial and Ethernet technologies. For last mile connectivity to sensors or actuators at the edge, use 10BASE-T1L and IO-Link®. For high speed applications, use low latency gigabit Ethernet, MLVDS, and RS-485. For industrial PC connectivity, ADI offers the latest isolated USB solutions with best-in-class robustness.
