ODVA has announced a White Paper outlining its vision for process automation. The organisation has launched an “initiative for process automation” – in cooperation with suppliers including Cisco, Rockwell and Schneider – to accelerate adoption of industrial Ethernet in process automation, based on ODVA’s industrial EtherNet/IP technology. The aim is to allow users to deploy Ethernet down to the field level and, in the long term, to include all process automation needs, including safety, explosion protection and diagnostics.
