Release Date: 2003
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Discover the power of industrial Ethernet (or "iE"), an affordable, open, and universal alternative to nearly 230 fieldbus protocols currently available for industrial control! The only book of its kind, The Industrial Ethernet Networking Guide paints an in-depth picture of key iE technologies, components, and functions. Gleaning information from industrial automation and Ethernet technology, the authors show readers how this new technology can be used across the corporate enterprise to enable a wealth of productivity improvements, as well as e-business, supply-chain, and agile/virtual manufacturing solutions. This highly engaging, fast-paced Guide begins by discussing the "Ethernet Communication Revolution" as a new framework for factory-to-business infrastructure, taking into account factors in networking the factory floor, as well as potential benefits and limitations of an iE solution. Subsequent chapters detail how to create an iE control network and enable valuable interconnection solutions, from factory-focused remote monitoring and wireless capabilities to VMI and ERP e-business solutions. This unbiased, factory perspective equips all readers – including plant managers, process control engineers and other IT professionals, senior executives, technical consultants and more – with a common base of knowledge to draw upon when planning their own iE network and solutions.

Automating with PROFINET

Author: Raimond Pigan
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9783895789502
Release Date: 2015-10-29
Genre: Science

PROFINET is the first integrated Industrial Ethernet Standard for automation, and utilizes the advantages of Ethernet and TCP/IP for open communication from the corporate management level to the process itself. PROFINET CBA divides distributed, complex applications into autonomous units of manageable size. Existing fieldbuses such as PROFIBUS and AS-Interface can be integrated using so-called proxies. This permits separate and cross-vendor development, testing and commissioning of individual plant sections prior to the integration of the solution as a whole. PROFINET IO, with its particularly fast real-time communication, fulfills all demands currently placed on the transmission of process data and enables easy integration of existing fieldbus systems. Isochronous real-time (IRT) is used for isochronous communication in motion control applications. PROFINET depends on established IT standards for network management and teleservice. Particulary to automation control engineering it offers a special security concept. Special industrial network technology consisting of active network components, cables and connection systems, together with recommendations for installation, complete the concept. This book serves as an introduction to PROFINET technology. Configuring engineers, commissioning engineers and technicians are given an overview of the concept and the fundamentals they need to solve PROFINET-based automation tasks. Technical relationships and practical applications are described using SIMATIC products as example.

There are many data communications titles covering design, installation, etc, but almost none that specifically focus on industrial networks, which are an essential part of the day-to-day work of industrial control systems engineers, and the main focus of an increasingly large group of network specialists. The focus of this book makes it uniquely relevant to control engineers and network designers working in this area. The industrial application of networking is explored in terms of design, installation and troubleshooting, building the skills required to identify, prevent and fix common industrial data communications problems - both at the design stage and in the maintenance phase. The focus of this book is 'outside the box'. The emphasis goes beyond typical communications issues and theory to provide the necessary toolkit of knowledge to solve industrial communications problems covering RS-232, RS-485, Modbus, Fieldbus, DeviceNet, Ethernet and TCP/IP. The idea of the book is that in reading it you should be able to walk onto your plant, or facility, and troubleshoot and fix communications problems as quickly as possible. This book is the only title that addresses the nuts-and-bolts issues involved in design, installation and troubleshooting that are the day-to-day concern of engineers and network specialists working in industry. * Provides a unique focus on the industrial application of data networks * Emphasis goes beyond typical communications issues and theory to provide the necessary toolkit of knowledge to solve industrial communications problems * Provides the tools to allow engineers in various plants or facilities to troubleshoot and fix communications problems as quickly as possible

Factory Planning Manual

Author: Michael Schenk
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 364203635X
Release Date: 2009-10-29
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The central purpose of this book is to impart knowledge, skills and practical - plementation methods for the planning and operation of adaptable production - cilities and factories. It addresses planning methods and procedures for various types of production facility up to and including entire factories, and is aimed at practicing factory planners and students alike. The book provides facts and demonstrates practical processes using case studies for the purposes of illustration, so that ultimately skills can be acquired that make independent practical implementation and app- cation possible. It is based on up-to-the-minute practical experience and univ- sally applicable knowledge of the planning and technological design of adaptable production facilities (manufacturing and assembly) and factories. In comparison to existing, thematically-similar reference books, what is in- vative about this manual is that it provides the impulse for a more flexible pl- ning approach for the efficient design of adaptable production facilities using - sponsive, unconventional planning and organizational solutions. The book aims to provide a way of integrating systematic and situation-driven planning methods in a meaningful way. Situation-driven planning is becoming increasingly important to production facilities in these fast-moving times of change, in particular in terms of resource and energy efficiency. Existing technical and organizational course of action in terms of resources (both human and technical) need to be selected for the specific case at hand, and changes (to workshops, products, processes and equ- ment) need to be managed.
