As an automation professional, you may find yourself tasked with activities in more and more areas, one which is industrial networking. Your IT department may be able to assist, but their expertise in real-time control and industrial automation is often limited. Advantech can assist with your industrial networking needs with products designed to meet your specific needs and fit your particular applications.
Advantech's line of Proview Ethernet Switches eases integration among plant floor devices and PC-based SCADA systems. These SCADA-manageable switches use Modbus/TCP to communicate with PC-based SCADA software platforms like Advantech's WebAccess. They also use SNMP to communicate with the Networking Management System (NMS) and by extension all Ethernet-enabled plant floor devices such as controllers, drives, and plant floor operator interface terminals. This allows full control over devices from the SCADA system.
