Industrial Ethernet Glossary Industrial Ethernet communication Protocols Ethernet is becoming ubiquitous and cost-effective, with common physical links and increased speed. As such, many industrial communication protocols are moving to Ethernet-based solutions. Ethernet communications with TCP/IP typically are non-deterministic, and reaction time is often around 100 ms. Industrial Ethernet protocols use a modified Media Access Control … Continued

WDM Technology of Things

Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM), A WDM technology that multiplexes several optical carrier signals onto a single optical fiber by using different wavelengths (i.e., colors) of laser light. This technique enables bidirectional communications over a single strand of fiber, also called wavelength-division duplexing, as well as multiplication of capacity. Transmission from combined sources is separated at … Continued
