Webinar: The evolution of fieldbuses using the example of Sercos

03/13/2018 16:00 to 17:00

Interesting developments and trends in automation technology can be derived by following the evolution of fieldbus systems.

Importantly, this also shows how fieldbus systems must evolve in the future in order to meet the requirements of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things.

This webinar explains how fieldbus systems have changed over the past 30 years and why Ethernet TSN is a logical evolution of existing fieldbus and real-time Ethernet systems.

In detail, the Webinar will deal with:

  • First generation fieldbuses, which were designed for specific requirements and tasks.
  • Second generation fieldbuses, which are all based on Ethernet and are universally applicable, but require special hardware support.
  • Ethernet TSN as the core technology for 3rd generation fieldbuses, which for the first time in the more than 40-year history of Ethernet, enables a timely and deterministic transmission of real-time critical messages over standard Ethernet hardware.

Peter Lutz, Managing Director, Sercos International, will lead through this webinar.
