Industrial digital networks
Communication network protocols
Basic knowledge in communication networks and basics in industrial networking.
There are many technologies and many solutions of communication techniques to exchange data between the machines and between the devices by using networks.
The complexity of networking leads to take in consideration different level or different points of view. ISO layers help to get some clarification about, by isolating different well identified functionalities.
The first part of this folder is a selection of general informations, of technical papers and educational papers related to the digital networks. They all concern the fundamental knowledge in digital communications need to exchange data (protocols, standards, hardware and more).
The second part is related with the specific features of the industrial networks used in factory automation and in process control. It introduces the main guidelines we can meet in most of the industrial networks solutions.
Computer and communication, Networking tutorial.
This directory lists all which concern computing and communication in general (it is not industry oriented).
It concerns the transmission media, the networks (essentially Ethernet based), the programming languages, the peripherals, the interfaces and the operating systems.
There are a lot of links reporting on Ethernet (protocols, ports etc) and even graphical standards such as OpenGL (Open Graphic Library).

"Lantronix" provides detailed technical tutorials helping to get a solid knowledge in fundamental networking.
Their purposes cover a wide range of technologies, including speed performances, remote management, devices, global functions, servers, wireless networking and security.
"This document covers networking basics including types of networks, the technology used to run networks, and the products that make it happen."
"This folder focuses on the topic of speed, mainly the factors that affect the speed of your network and the technologies available for speeding it up."
"These pages focus on terminal servers, print servers and console servers and how they enable devices across networks to share information and interact."
"These chapters give an overview of switches and how they function on a network. The tutorial covers a number of switching technologies as well as how switching addresses network congestion to optimize network capacity."
"This part gives a comprehensive look at device server technologies including important topics like M2M,
serial to Ethernet connectivity, 802.11b wireless networking, and AES (Rijndael) Encryption. This is a valuable resource for networking professionals."
EIN, Field network for process control.
You will find here some interesting technical articles related to industrial networking in general and to specific industrial networks in particular.
You will find informations about protocols, security, connectivity, standards, time synchronization and many more.
The networks it is talked are Ethernet in the industry, real time wireless local area network, profibus, Ethernet IP, wireless HART, Ethernet Powerlink and so on.
This introduction is a good synthesis reporting on factory automation and process automation fieldbus, with a short field bus history.
In the first part, Jonas BERGE (ISA) presents what are the digital networks and how specific are its industrial applications.
The second part covers different applications areas of automation networking, such as factory automation, process automation, field and host level.
The evolution of control architecture section talked about PLC architecture (distributed, centralized, field control system), the fundamental differences between some field networks
