News: Automation and Control


04/24/2015 – Extended communication capability comes to TeSys T devices with the addition of EtherNet/IP protocol. This open, industry-standard networking technology enables easier integration of high-level motor protection capabilities into a facility-wide supervision and control system.

Increasingly displacing older industrial automation protocols and chosen by Schneider Electric as the convergence communication protocol for products connected to Ethernet networks, EtherNet/IP is an excellent choice to assure long-term compatibility, availability and support. It also supports communications across a broad range of industrial and commercial facilities, so they can more easily enhance energy efficiency and production optimization.

TeSys T motor management system with EtherNet/IP protocol provides multiple benefits:

  • EtherNet/IP uses standard Ethernet tools and technologies, making it easier to combine motor management with PLCs and computers, while helping ensure continued compatibility as the technology evolves.
  • Standardization drastically reduces communication configuration and testing time.
  • Allows devices from different manufactures to be used for distinct applications.
  • EtherNet/IP offers superior robustness and reliability, while sustaining enhanced bandwidth to support control, data, and other functions.
