Migrating from Serial to Ethernet/IP with Patton Solutions
Implementing the right technological solutions is central to serial device networking in industrial automation. Even older industrial networks devices (ie. PLCs, RTUs, and IEDs) that communicate over serial connections such as RS-232, 422 and 485 remain indispensable for a number of critical business operations. It's crucial to leverage the benefits of enabling these legacy applications for communication over Ethernet/IP, but it may be a daunting thought concerning how and where to start. Sometimes, it's just as important - if not, more - to cover the how's and why's or serial-to-IP migration for industrial automation today.
