Industrial Communication

The data exchange between sensors and actuators at production level, between the controllers and industrial computers at control level and between the servers at command level is referred to as industrial communication. For data networking in the industrial environment, we offer a wide range of products under our brand ICPDAS. 

Fieldbus and Ethernet for industrial use

With our industrial communication technology, you can reliably implement complex tasks such as controlling machines, connecting sensors or acquisition and transmitting production data. Powerful data networks create the basis for fast and smooth communication, which increases productivity and efficiency in your company. Our communication products support the proven fieldbus protocols and high-performance Ethernet standards.

Industrial communication by categories:

Reliable communication via fieldbus protocols

Fieldbus protocols are characterized by high stability and proven technology. Therefore, data transmission via fieldbus plays a major role in industrial processes. Under our brand ICPDAS, we offer fieldbus communication products such as fieldbus cards with up to eight CAN ports.

In addition, we provide a comprehensive range of serial interface cards. We offer a variety of PCI and PCI Express cards. Variants with two to eight isolated RS-232 or RS-422/RS485 interfaces are available.

Real-time data transmission with Ethernet

In automation technology, Ethernet has firmly established itself as a network for time-critical processes and presents efficient transmission of large amounts of data. Industrial Ethernet has become the preferred choice for industrial systems with high performance and real-time capability compared to conventional serial fieldbus communication.

ICPDAS provides a variety of unmanaged and managed Ethernet switches for the establishment of a high-performance Ethernet network in an industrial environment. The Ethernet switches are available with 2 to 24 ports, with fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet connections depending on requirements. Plug-and-play functionality and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) for power supply of PoE devices ensure easy integration. Our ICPDAS fiber optic media converters ensure secure data transmission in the event of high electromagnetic interference or overcoming long distances.

Gateways, serial device servers and converters for industrial communication 

ICPDAS gateways connect industrial networks, gateways are available for all important fieldbuses such as Profibus, DeviceNet and CANopen. Gateway versions are also available for Ethernet connection via Profinet, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT. With our serial device servers you can quickly and easily integrate serial devices into an Ethernet network.

More than 80 different converters enable you to convert data according your individual requirements. For example from CANbus to USB, Profibus to Ethernet or EtherCAT to fiber...
