B&R Industrial Automation offers Ethernet Powerlink, a platform with a completely open, 100% software-based system that can utilize Gigabit Ethernet to run 10 times faster than other real-time Ethernet options on the market.
Simply exchange the hardware platform when porting from Fast Ethernet to Gigabit Ethernet, without affecting Powerlink. System is 100% compatible and offers long-term investment security. The performance advantage can also be used with the Ethernet Powerlink Safety solution, because the increased data transfer rate is already taken into consideration in the basic version of the safety protocol.
