Communication Network analysis and design
Communication networks, for I/O control or data collection purposes, are the back bone of industrial automation. Proper selection and installation of hardware, software, and cabling are essential for having a trouble-free communication network. Universal Automation consultants evaluate your application and recommend proper network choice to meet your communication goals. We point out advantages and disadvantages of different networks such as Ethernet, Allen-Bradley DH+, ControlNet, and remote I/O. For SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system, a telemetry network may be used. We design the network based on topology, transmission mode, link media, and protocol.
