Embedded systems often need to communicate with the outside world. The availability of standard Ethernet / Internet inside buildings quickly creates the desire that the embedded system can be controlled andoperated using that same network.
There is therefore much to gain advantage.
We have already designed a variety of solutions for customers that are based on Internet communication. These applications perform well, with a very good throughput.
Special forms of Ethernet communication may be found in industrial communication networks.
TCP / IP
Allows all standard TCP protocols to be used for both management and for specific data exchange.
Modbus is available in RS485 RTU mode and as standard Ethernet network as Modbus-TCP. Both protocols read and write parameters and process values. This protocol is particularly suitable for low / medium-speed data exchange. Even with Modbus-TCP technology we have technology available for looping the Ethernet cable from one device to another.
This protocol offers real-time exchange of parameters and process values. Remote devices may be monitored and controlled with a precision of 1ms.
CANbus and CAN Open
The automotive grade CAN protocol provides real-time access to process parameters and settings. Multiple devices on the bus can transmit their data to others or retrieve information.
