The industrial automation and process control industry utilizes specialized communications and networking equipment designed to operate reliably in extremely difficult environments. Caprixa Control provides field level network services that help our clients seamlessly connect their field devices and controllers. Factory automation, programmable logic controller (PLC), and motor control manufacturers are challenged to implement a wide variety of industrial Ethernet protocols to support customer requirements.
Their correct behaviour will not simply be a matter of functional correctness that is, making sure that the results of the computations are correct, but they will depend on timing and reliability constraints. Building such networks and systems in an efficient, predictable and reliable way in spite of the increased complexity of functions and architectures in a way that allows predictable integration of software components and platforms is the future major challenge in the communications industry.
