Digital Transformation

The current trends of automation and data exchange in manufacturing, also referred to as “Industry 4.0” or the “Industrial Internet of Things” (IIoT), are based upon digitization. By converting analog signals, sounds, images, texts, and other information into a computer-readable format, digitization has been transforming industries for decades. For manufacturers to make sense of all these bits of information, the data must be transported from numerous sensors and equipment on the factory floor and processed for humans or other machines to make informed decisions in real-time.

The Road Toward IIoT and Industry 4.0

What Is TSN?

TSN is a collection of standards that enables deterministic messaging over standard Ethernet networks. As defined by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), TSN involves a form of network traffic management to ensure non-negotiable time frames for end-to-end transmission latencies. Consequently, all TSN devices must synchronize their clocks with each other and use a common time reference to support real-time communications for industrial control applications.

Moxa was invited by CLPA and Mitsubishi Electric to Taipei
Automation 2021 to demonstrate six real-world TSN applications
powered by Moxa and the partners. During the event, Moxa
showcased applications with CLPA, Mitsubishi Electric, Intel,
port GmbH, Orisol, and Sumyen Automation, which realized
the concept of one unified network across different automation

Simulating a Smart Factory Network With and Without TSN

Real-time communication is crucial for smart factory automation
as networks grow in scale and complexity. Let’s see how time-
sensitive networking (TSN) realizes deterministic communication
in converged applications.
