Redundancy in automation

Feb. 3, 2010
Since Ethernet now penetrates the automation hierarchy, and Industrial Ethernet switches have started playing a key role in setting up Ethernet LANs, we can expect the technology available for plant floor systems in industrial automation to keep improving. Moxa discusses this in their new white paper.
The power, media, node, network, and complete system redundancy mentioned above certainly help create a more convenient kind of industrial automation control. In short, we should pay careful attention to the redundancy concept, and include it as a central part of the design of industrial automation networks.Download white paper
