Industrial Communication Protocols
Future-proof Industrial Networking with Standard Ethernet and IP
EtherNet/IP™ is an open industrial Ethernet network capable of handling discrete, safety, motion, process, and drive control applications. EtherNet/IP helps to enable secure, real-time information between machines, systems, and enterprises. This network allows information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) professionals to more easily meet their business goals.
We are a member of ODVA, who defines standards and develops tools for the deployment of the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP). CIP is an application layer protocol that is shared by a family of industrial networks, EtherNet/IP, ControlNet™, and DeviceNet™. It provides industrial networking for safety, time synchronization, motion control, and information. This protocol provides CIP Safety™, CIP Sync™, CIP Motion™, CIP Energy™, and CIP Security™ services.
