Industrial Communication Protocols
Future-proof Industrial Networking with Standard Ethernet and IP
EtherNet/IP? is an open industrial Ethernet network capable of handling discrete, safety, motion, process, and drive control applications. EtherNet/IP helps to enable secure, real-time information between machines, systems, and enterprises. This network allows information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) professionals to more easily meet their business goals.
We are a member of ODVA, who defines standards and develops tools for the deployment of the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP). CIP is an application layer protocol that is shared by a family of industrial networks, EtherNet/IP, ControlNet?, and DeviceNet?. It provides industrial networking for safety, time synchronization, motion control, and information. This protocol provides CIP Safety?, CIP Sync?, CIP Motion?, CIP Energy?, and CIP Security? services.
