New Technologies Industrial Ethernet Switches Designed for Control System Integrators

California, U.S.A., November 2018 – Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions shares the advantages of our new technologies and industrial Ethernet switches especially designed for control system integrators.

The market trend is moving beyond a purely product-based approach to focusing on offering an end-to-end integrated solution for future proof investments. Control system integrators design and implement sophisticated control systems for manufacturing, process and other industrial facilities. With their outstanding knowledge of engineering, information technology, and business, control system integrators integrate plant equipments to automate manufacturing processes from the plant floor (OT) to the enterprise level (IT). Industries served include Food & beverages, Oil & Gas, Automotive, Packaging & materials, Life sciences, Chemicals, Mining & aggregates, Waste & wastewater, Textiles, Paper & pulps etc. .

Now the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution, manufacturers are accelerating their implementation of the Industrial IIoT in order to leverage Industry 4.0 tools and processes to maximize profitability. Central to this transformation is a migration from legacy Field bus systems to the modern Industrial Ethernet. Industrial Ethernet is the technology of the future for the factory floor. This is because it enables convergence to the office and to the internet, which impossible over traditional technologies. Automation helps manufacturers and processors reduce cost, increase production, use less energy and lower environmental impact.

Ethernet Direct industrial Ethernet switches are designed using the latest industry technologies to meet the ever-changing application demands.
