Hirschmann / Belden
Hirschmann™ has adopted a major role in the establishment of Ethernet technology as the standard in the pro duction area. Today, the Powerlink protocol from the Ethernet Powerlink Standardization Group already provides an open method for the realisation of hard realtime applications using Ethernet, for example for machinery controllers by integrating the CANopen® Protocols. Hirschmann™ is a founding member of the EPSG.
It is currently the only brand on the market to offer a complete product range for homogeneous data communication in the industrial sector using Ethernet and Fieldbus systems. This includes Layer 2 and Layer 3 switches as well as industrial security and WLAN systems that provide a uniform, company-wide communications infrastructure without interface problems and media discontinuities. These products are used in many different applications such as factory automation, process control, transportation and mechanical engineering.
Hirschmann™ not only offers a complete range of products for company-wide data networks, but also a broad support package direct from the product manufacturer. Customers are supported, both during the conception of tailor-made communications solutions, and during the planning, design, commissioning and maintenance of the networks. Seminars and workshops, in which trends and developments are evaluated, and technical subjects put into practice, complete the range of services.
