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.

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.
