Industrial networks have to be able to work in extreme environmental conditions and be able to recover from failures of nodes or cable with zero down time for the rest of the network. In essence they must have:
Down time in an industrial network can mean a major loss in production time, which in turn means a loss of money for a company. An industral network is designed so that there can be no single point of failure within it.
In production environments the use of smaller PLC's for localised control of processes and applications is more beneficial rather than centrally wiring everything back to one large PLC that controls everything. This system has an advantage of making it possible to take just a small section of the plant down for maintenance rather than an entire plant and in the event of failure only one section need be affected.
Also the topology that is used for connecting the network is a major influence on it's ability to correct itself after a hardware or software failure. Two of the most popular layouts for industrial networks are the Redundant Ring Topology and the Mesh Topology. These layouts allow the network to keep running when there is a node or cable failure.
At MRP we can design and install the ideal network for your industry. By taking into account the environment and needs of your company we can select appropriate hardware and give advice on the best solutions for you.
We can also install the network for you, to insure that it is implemented correctly and smoothly. We can even help you manage the network once it's up and running.
