Industrial Ethernet – Learn About

More than half of Industrial Ethernet problems can be traced to cabling. Some of these show up immediately during the startup process – others can allow the connection to function properly until something such as environmental changes cause communications failures. Ethernet is a robust technology that allows communications to continue even under marginal circumstances – but a change in those circumstances might cause communications problems or a complete failure down the road. Here are the most common problems with cabling.
