Scalable. Flexible. Connect Anywhere. Industrial Communications from Device to Cloud.
Hilscher is a global specialist in network connectivity solutions for device makers, OEMs, system integrators, and end-user manufacturers. Founded in 1986 and with locations worldwide, Hilscher’s communications products span single-chip ASICS, embedded modules, PC cards, gateways, proxies, protocol converters, and IIoT solutions.
At the heart of every product is Hilscher’s own netX network controller ASIC. netX is a game-changer because it allows “best-in-class” network choice for any application. The netX-based solutions support industrial communications protocols, including Fieldbuses (DeviceNet, Modbus, CC-Link, PROFIBUS, and more); Real-Time Ethernets (EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, PROFINET, Modbus TCP, CC-Link IE, POWERLINK, Sercos and TSN) and IIoT protocols (OPC UA and MQTT), with universal Master and/or Slave connections.
For device makers and OEMs, netX chips and embedded solutions allow any industrial communications protocols to be designed into your products with built-in security, using one chip family and a common set of software tools. This helps “future-proof” your designs while minimizing costs and development time.
The network pain for end-users and system integrators is how to interconnect all the different automation networks found across their manufacturing facilities. Hilscher’s netX-based products for these challenges include gateways, proxies, PC cards, and supporting software stacks that make it easy to connect one network to another for improved dataflow.
Hilscher’s netFIELD portfolio is a platform for simplifying IIoT deployment. It includes sensorEDGE devices and gateways; netFIELD Edge Gateways; netFIELD Cloud, with a Software-as-a-Service Platform and Portal; and netFIELD Applications to configure and connect to automation protocols and commercial clouds.
Hilscher also offers extensive engineering services to develop custom solutions tailored to your exact specifications. Contact Hilscher for more information on how we can support your application.
