Industrial Ethernet is based on IEEE 802.3 (Ethernet) network of powerful regional and unit. Using industrial Ethernet, SIMATIC NET provides a way to seamlessly integrated into the new world of multimedia.
Intranet (Intranet), external Web (Extranet), and the Internet (Internet) widely provided has not only entered the field of today's Office, but also can be used for production and process automation. Following 10M baud rate after a successful run over Ethernet, switched, full-duplex fast Ethernet and adaptive 100M baud rate (Fast Ethernet, in line with the IEEE 802.3U standard) has been successfully running for many years. What Ethernet performance depends on the user's needs. Universal compatibility allows the user to seamlessly upgrade to new technology.
