Industrial Ethernet

Customized to meet digital industry requirements

Siemens' industrial communication relies on Industrial Ethernet and comprises everything that you need to realize highly efficient industrial networks and bus systems: Powerful, future-proof network components for reliable use in harsh industrial environments, a cabling system for fast assembly on site, high-speed redundancy for failure safety, and an alarm concept for continuous monitoring of network components. In addition, with TSN (Time-Sensitive Networking), Siemens is using the superpower in Industrial Ethernet – with PROFINET at the field level and OPC UA at the control and operator level.

Network Transitions

Everything you need for network transition – and unlimited communications

When you are connecting Industrial Ethernet, PROFIBUS, or AS interface, Siemens is your proven network transition solution. We offer tailor-made products for every network type, and can provide you with the optimum basis for company-wide, integrated and unlimited communications.

Network Diagnostics

Monitor and diagnose your industrial networks from a central location with powerful hardware and software products. The Network Management System SINEC NMS is perfectly equipped for handling more and more complex network structures in an increasingly digital world. The SNMP OPC Server software supports in the essential tasks of network monitoring and diagnostics of Ethernet-based data. Using SCALANCE TAP104, you can extract these data frames and analyze and evaluate them together with the BUS ANALYZER. PRONETA is a tool that supports you in the analysis and configuration of PROFINET networks.


PROFINET gateway for realizing fault-tolerant infrastructures for process automation

With the IE/PB LINK HA network transition, which is optimized for use in the process industry, high-redundancy infrastructures can be realized based on the open Industrial Ethernet standard PROFINET. The network transition enables the connection of PROFIBUS field devices to a redundant controller such as SIMATIC S7-400. In this way, the IE/PB LINK HA can integrate existing PROFIBUS segments in PCS 7 plants with redundant networks. This ensures interruption-free plant operation, in part because configuration changes can be made during operation.
