How to choose the right industrial protocol switch

An industrial control network is a system of interconnected equipment used to monitor and control physical equipment in industrial environments. These networks differ significantly from traditional enterprise networks due to the specific requirements of various operations.

Unlike a conventional network, which supports data processing and transferring, the primary function of industrial networks is to control and monitor physical equipment, usually for manufacturing, processing and utility distribution. Industrial network equipment must perform under harsh environmental conditions, such as heat, dust and vibrations. High reliability is critical, and round trip times must sustain no longer than 20ms.
