Power Source Several series of Industrial Ethernet products comprise the CTRLink family. Each series is broadly classified under the For safety and convenience, CTRLink products operate titles Hubs, Switches, Media Converters and Routers. A Hub from unregulated or regulated low-voltage AC or DC power implies a repeating hub whereas a Switch refers to a sources. DC voltages can range from 10 VDC to 36 VDC. switching hub. Media Converters simply provide the means AC voltages range from 8 VAC to 24 VAC, 47 to 63 Hz. for converting from twisted-pair cabling to fiber optic Power consumption varies by model from 4 to 20 watts. cabling.

Data Rates Protocols The minimum data rate for Industrial Ethernet is 10 Mbps Ethernet defines the physical and data link layers of the and some devices can only operate at that speed. However, ISO Open Systems Interconnect Reference Model. There are other devices can operate at the next higher speed, numerous protocols that define the layers above the data 100 Mbps, or at either speed. If all devices can operate at link layer with the TCP/IP suite of protocols being the most 10 Mbps, it is possible to use a repeating hub. If 100 Mbps popular. Even above TCP, there are several application layer operation is necessary, a switching hub must be used. All protocols specific to the automation industry such as CTRLink switching hubs are capable of operating at either EtherNet/IP, PROFInet, HSE, MODBUS/TCP, iDA, BACnet and speed. On copper ports, speed setting is accomplished a host of proprietary protocols. Since CTRLink products are through the auto-negotiation protocol or manually. Fiber based upon Ethernet technology, these products will operate optic port data rates are usually set manually. CTRLink 7

  20. 20. EISK Skorpion EISK switches were specifically designed to provide Plug and Play Ethernet connectivity for Industrial Automation Switch Systems which have unique needs—convenient mounting, simple and dependable operation, low-voltage input power and low-cost. These needs are met by the compact and rugged EISK and EISK8 Skorpion switches. Utilizing switching technology, the EISK5-100T (Skorpion 5) provides five 10/100 Mbps shielded RJ-45 ports and the EISK8-100T (Skorpion 8) provides eight such ports. Each port supports the auto-negotiation protocol in order to select data rate, duplex and flow control. Both half- and full-duplex operation are supported as well as flow control. For half-duplex links, the backpressure scheme is used. For full-duplex links, the PAUSE scheme is supported. All ports are Auto-MDIX compliant and, therefore, any port can operate as an uplink port to another switch, eliminating the need for crossover cables in the field. All these features require no operator intervention, making the Skorpion IAS switches truly Plug and Play.

EIBA BAS EIBA switches were specifically designed to provide plug and play Ethernet connectivity for building automation systems Switch (BAS) which have unique needs—convenient mounting, simple and dependable operation, low-voltage input power and especially low cost. These needs are met by two compact, rugged units: the EIBA5-100T for panel mounting and EIBA5-100T/R for DIN-rail mounting. Although small and low cost, EIBA switches are very capable devices. Utilizing switching technology, they provide five 10/100 Mbps shielded RJ-45 ports. Each port supports the auto-negotiation protocol in order to select data rate, duplex and flow control. Both half- and full-duplex operation are supported as well as flow control. For half-duplex links, the EIBA5-100T/R EIBA5-100T backpressure scheme is used.

  22. 22. The EISM miniature switching hub is designed to be used EISM Miniature where space is at a premium because of shrinking panels and the Switch space restrictions of small machines. The EISM5-100T is designated as a five-port miniature switching hub. One port has an extra RJ-45 allowing it to be used as an uplink port to connect two switches together; thereby eliminating the need for a crossover cable. It divides the Ethernet network into as many as five separate collision domains, and terminates the collision domain at each port to function as a “bridge” between these various data links, creating a larger network diameter than can be achieved with repeating hubs. Each port automatically negotiates with its attached device the data rate (10 or 100 Mbps) and duplex (full or half) for that port. The flow control mechanism is also negotiated. For full-duplex segments, the PAUSE scheme is used. For half-duplex segments, the backpressure method is EISM5-100T automatically invoked. The switch learns the port locations of Ethernet devices by reading Ethernet frames and observing source addresses. A table of source addresses and corresponding port assignments is created and maintained. From this point, traffic is restricted to only those ports involved in a transmission. This allows enhanced throughput Features since simultaneous transmissions can now be initiated on those ports without activity.

  23. 23. The EIS Ethernet Interconnect Switch provides a solution for EIS Ethernet those industrial applications requiring a larger network diameter Interconnect Switch and greater throughput than provided by repeating hubs. Models exist that support both twisted pair and fiber optics. All models of the EIS series segment the Ethernet network into separate collision domains.

  24. 24. The EISC Series of configurable switches provides capabilities EISC Configurable beyond those found in standard Plug and Play (PnP) switches. Switch Besides conventional PnP features such as auto-negotiation, 10/100 Mbps data rate, half- or full-duplex operation and flow control, the EISC has advanced features such as Port VLAN, trunking, Quality of Service (QoS) and a programmable fault relay that can be connected to a supervisory system. Individual port parameters can be configured via a console port attached to a Windows-based workstation. Port status can be monitored over the console port using the Modbus protocol, making it easy to interface the EISC with supervisory control equipment. These features and more make the EISC Industrial Ethernet switch one of the most versatile available. The EISC boasts advanced features that are typically only available in high-end switches. EISC16-100T • Port VLAN allows for the physical network to be configured as multiple virtual local area networks; thereby limiting the EISC12-100T/FT broadcast/multicast domains and improving performance. EISC12-100T/FC • Trunking allows ports to be grouped in fours to function as a high-speed backbone to another EISC configurable switch.
