Treotham Automation Pty Ltd announces the release of a new range of intelligent Ethernet networking products featuring EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT protocols.

Wenglor has expanded its range of industrial communication products to include EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT protocols in addition to PROFINET. The OCP high performance distance sensors now provide for consistent communication down to the field level with two additional protocols.

The OCP distance sensors feature a compact housing measuring 50 x 50 x 30 mm, IP67 protection, an integrated web server, a graphic display, and functions based on PROFINET, supplemented with EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT protocols.

Equipped with RS-232 or PROFINET, the OCP product range will now support an additional standardised communications interface by adding the real-time EtherCAT protocol in combination with PoE and distributed clock technology. The time-stamp function is important when spatially distributed processes are coordinated with each other and precise synchronisation of all Ethernet users is required.
