Industrial Network and Field Bus Protocols

Factory automation controllers, industrial drives, power grid management, health care facilities, and transportation systems demand reliable, real-time, and deterministic network connections. These may use traditional field bus protocols, such as PROFIBUS, DeviceNet™, CAN, InterBus and Foundation Field Bus, or newer industrial Ethernet protocols, which include PROFINET, EtherNet/IP™, Powerlink, EtherCAT®, Modbus® TCP and SERCOS III. Many Freescale processors can bridge between different industrial protocols.
